Woodton Primitive Methodist chapel

Chapel Hill, Woodton NR35 2NX

The foundation stone for Woodton Primitive Methodist chapel was laid on 07/03/1836 and the chapel opened with celebration services on 22/04/1836 and  24/04/1836. Preachers at the opening services were, on the Friday, Brothers Webster, Smith and T Bennett , and on the Sunday, Brothers J Bunn & J Moss.

The new chapel measured 21′(w) x 30′(l). Mr Delp, a member of the  Independent society, purchased the land and sent his teams to cart 10,000 bricks to the site.

The opening is described by J Bunn in the Primitive Methodist magazine.

The chapel building still exists and in 2015 you could have bought it – complete with planning permission for conversion to a house – for between £100,000 and £150,000
