Methodism was strong in the village and the Primitive Methodist chapel erected in 1862 still stands on Pinfold Street.  The smaller Sunday school  next door  was opened in 1889.

It was closed in the 1960s and used subsequently for a while as the Parish Council offices.

  • Thanks for the correction Robin. I have amended the page to take it into account.
    Funnily enough, I had just reached the point in the Primitive Methodist magazine of 1889 where the laying of the memorial stones for the new school accommodation was recorded.

    It would be good to add a picture of the inside of the chapel and a picture from a different time period to the page. Please send to

  • The “second chapel”, as you call it, was the school room. I have picture of the inside when it was a chapel and colour pictures from 1960.
