  • It was built in 1866 in red & blue bricks in a diaper pattern.
    The chapel was still in use in 1982, but ceased to be used for religious purposes. In 2003 the former chapel was converted to residential use, comprising a number of apartments.

    OPENING OF A NEW CHAPEL. The opening services of a New Primitive Methodist Chapel here, took place on Sunday, the 4t inst. The Rev. S. C. Artliff, of Nottingham, preached three sermons – that in the morning in the new chapel, which, though small, is an exceedingly neat building; and those in the afternoon and evening, in the Primitive Methodist Chapel, Wrockwardine Wood, kindly lent. The united collections amounted to £23 7s. 6d.”
