Northampton Primitive Methodist chapel

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.  What happened to it?

  • The original PM Chapel in Northampton was Horsemarket, opened in 1840 and pictured in Kendall vol.ii p.417. It was rebuilt again in 1872 and finally closed in 1942 and demolished.
