Hudsnall (Hucknall under Huthwaite) Primitive Methodist chapel

The 1884 Primitive Methodist magazine contains a note of the opening of a new Primitive Methodist chapel at Hudsnall in the Mansfield station.  It cost around £400 of which they had raised half.

They had previously met in a workshop.

The only problem is that there is no place called Hudsnall on Ordnance Survey maps or Google maps, especially not near Mansfield. However, the 1888 circuit plan for Mansfield does contain a chapel in Hucknall where services were held twice on a Sunday. Is that Hudsnall?  It is quite conceivable that a handwritten ck could be misread as a ds by someone unfamiliar with the name. However, the 1884 date does not align with any of the Hucknall chapels

  • The Hucknall in the Mansfield Circuit would be Hucknall under Huthwaite. No Primitive Methodist chapel is recorded there in the 1829 or 1867 returns.
