Rhodesia Primitive Methodist chapel
Keith Guyler 1995

The village of Rhodesia was built in 1920 near to the small established settlement of Haggonfields to provide housing for workers from the nearby Shireoaks and Steetley pits. The village was named Rhodesia after the long-time chairman of the colliery company, Mr G. Preston Rhodes.

The Primitive Methodist chapel was opened in 1924.  It was still active at the time of Keith Guyler’s photograph in 1995, but in 2013 was for sale (at £30,000) under the rather odd heading “Barn for sale”.
