There is an account in the Primitive Methodist magazine (1836 p.394) of the opening of an earlier Allendale Town Primitive Methodist chapel. Opening services were held on the 9th and 10th April 1836 when the preachers were H Hebbron & Miss Elizabeth Newton.

It measured 30′ wide by 35′ long, with a gallery and a house underneath. All the stones were hewn and brought free of charge.

  • The chapel closed after 1957, probably in the 1960s.
