The first Deanshanger Primitive Methodist chapel was opened in 1849.

The 1849 Primitive Methodist magazine tells us that opening services started on December 2nd 1849. Opening preachers included John Giltrow (Luton) George Waite, Mr Allen, E Foster.  It measured 24′ x 18′ x 10′ and cost £120 of which they had raised only £20.

In the 1850 magazine, George Waite igives an update on raising the money.. n the Primitive Methodist magazine. He reported that they had raised the £20 by collecting half crown coins and a £10 donation from Mr Horne.  The associated tea meeting also resulted in “a  conversion of several souls” and a useful profit.

The building in Keith Guyler’s photograph was opened in 1892.

It continues to serve as Deanshanger Methodist chapel.
