Northampton Horse Market Primitive Methodist Chapel 1840
There is an account by R Thompson in the 1856 Primitive Methodist magazine of the re-opening of Northampton Primitive Methodist chapel after the addition of side galleries, necessary because of the growth of the society. The society was allowed to do the work which cost £40 on condition they did not add to the debt; they had raised £30 by the time of the article. Donors included Raikes Currie, Esq., M.P. and the Mayor of Northampton.
Re-opening celebrations including a tea meeting started on May 11th, 1856. Preachers included Rev. J. Bywater, of London, Miss Wilson, of London, and R Thompson.
There is no indication in the article as to where the chapel was.
It turns out that it was in the Horsemarket and in 1872 it was replaced by a larger chapel – see here.
