Leighton Primitive Methodist chapel in Heaton Road, Byker,  Newcastle opened in 1877.  It was named after William Brogg Leighton – read about him here and on the Heaton History Group website here.

In 1965 the chapel merged with the Wesleyan Methodists’ Bainbridge Memorial Chapel, a short distance along Heaton Road. The Leighton Memorial premises were closed and later demolished. The 1970s shops towards the corner of Shields Road were built on the site.
