Sutton Cum Lound Primitive Methodist chapel

Town Street, Sutton Cum Lound, RETFORD, DN22 8PT

former Sutton Primitive Methodist chapel

The notes accompanying Keith Guyler’s photograph say that Sutton Primitive Methodist chapel was opened in 1879 and closed in the 1980s.  At the time of the photograph it was being converted into a house.  On Google Street View in 2011 it is for sale.

However, in the Primitive Methodist magazine of 1870, James R Parkinson tells us of the opening of a new chapel in Sutton cum Lound on July 24th 1870.  Rev E Tyas was the opening preacher. The chapel was Chapel transformed from a barn and a joiner’s shop Is that the same chapel but with  an error in one of the dates, or is it a different chapel?

It was very small, with accommodation for 35.
