The first Gringley Primitive Methodist chapel dates from 1838. It was replaced in 1900 by a second chapel and after closure became a house.

The laying of the foundation stones for the second chapel is recorded in the Primitive Methodist magazine of 1888 – although this is 12 years before Keith Guyler’s date for the second chapel. The stones were laid by the Vice-President of Conference and more than half the cost had been raised by the time of the stone laying.

  • Though Gringley on the Hill Primitive Methodist chapel was associated with Gainsborough and Lincolnshire circuits, Gringley is in Nottinghamshire and should be listed in that county.

  • I live in Gringley on the Hill and I’m currently researching some of the buildings which has led me to discover that apparently the first chapel was on the High Street in the village. It was built in 1800.

    A mention that the second PM Chapel was built in 1888 and the other then used has a School Room.
