Ellesmere Mount Zion Primitive Methodist chapel in the Oswestry circuit was opened on July 12th 1840.  It measured 13 yds x 7yds x 16′ high and cost £253 7s 3d. (see photo 1 & 2)

The chapel was replaced  in 1908 by a new chapel – unusually with a tower – in Trimpley Street. (see photo 3 & 4) The Mount Zion building in 2018 is Scott’s Victoria Garage.

R Ward writes about the opening of Mount Zion in the Primitive Methodist magazine in the attached document.
