The return from the Primitive Methodist chapel to the 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious worship was completed by the minister, Rev William Leaker, and the society steward, Henry Withers of Wilton. They report that the chapel was recently opened on September 23rd 1849 – and was not big enough for the congregation. It seated 70 people with a further ten standing but this was not big enough for the number wanting to attend and the society could not afford to enlarge it.
On Census Sunday 52 attended in the afternoon and 55 in the evening. There was a Sunday school with 15 scholars in the morning and 20 in the afternoon.
I cannot see a Primitive Methodist chapel on old Ordnance Survey maps. Where was the chapel and what happened to it?
