Curry Hill Primitive Methodist chapel

Curry Hill: Return from the Primitive Methodist chapel in the 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious Worship
transcribed by David Tonks

Curry Hill Primitive Methodist chapel in West Allendale was opened in 1844; W Lea tells us in the 1845 Primitive Methodist magazine.

Opening preachers at the services in late 1844 included Revs J Harper (Independent), H Hebbron and W Lea.

The new chapel was 31′ x 24′ “covered in blue slate, neatly fitted up with pews and forms, well lighted and supplied with a good stove; and the cost of it was about ¬£92/12/7.” The land was given by Joseph Lee of Keenlyside, with generous help from J Ritson , J Keenlyside and others so that only around ¬£20 was owing.

Two previous societies could also be accommodated – Allotment House, where they had met in the house of Brother J Liddle, and Nine Banks

  • I’m wondering if this should be ‘Corryhill Chapel’, not ‘Curry Hill’ – located in Ninebanks, near Allendale? (NE47 8DB)
