Tilney St Lawrence Primitive Methodist chapel
Keith Guyler 1996

Tilney St Lawrence Primitive Methodist chapel was opened in 1897.  There is some contradiction in the notes which accompany Keith Guyler’s photograph about its closure. He gives the date as 1970s, but he also dates the undertakers that it became from 1960. 

The Cambridgeshire Archives hold records until 1974.

Google Street View in 2009 shows it still used by RF Whitear, undertaker.  In 2013 you could have bought it for £120,000, complete with planning permission for conversion into a two storey dwelling house of approx 2150 square feet.

  • In the entry for Tilney St Lawrence in White’s Gazetteer for Norfolk, published in 1836, it states: “The Primitive Methodists have a small chapel here, and another in Fen End, a hamlet partly in this parish”. Though this building dates from later it is possible an earlier structure existed on the same site.
