Walpole Cross Keys Primitive Methodist chapel

Cross Keys (Walpole) Primitive Methodist chapel
Keith Guyler 1996

Cross Keys is west of King’s Lynn. Cross Keys (Walpole) Primitive Methodist chapel dates from 1869.  The building in the picture dates from 1905 and was altered in 1911.

It closed around 1975 and at the time of Keith Guyler’s photograph in 1996 it formed part of a house.

Keith Guyler’s notes also say “1934 for Wisbech” but I’m not sure what that means.

  • The building in Keith Guyler’s photo is the schoolroom only. The chapel closed 1977 (certificate of worship cancelled 1978). It was registered 17th March 1855 as a Place of Religious Worship, although at the time of closure it was said to have been built in 1869 – rebuilt?

    It was subsequently demolished. For a while the schoolroom was used as a Gospel hall or similar. Permission for change of use was granted in 1985. By 1992 it had been converted into a dwelling.

    In 1933 the Centenary was celebrated. I assume this was the centenary of the Society/first chapel.
    Re Mr Guylers note “1934 for Wisbech”. Perhaps he meant ‘for Lynn’, as the chapel was transferred from the Wisbech to the King’s Lynn circuit that year.
