Burton on Trent Primitive Methodist chapel

Station Street, Burton on Trent

Burton on Trent Primitive Methodist chapel was erected in 1829, in what was then known as Cat Street, (now Station Street). It was a roomy building, and a house was erected at the back for the minister, while the accounts show payment for “one load of coal to hair new house 7/-,” and “goods carting to Cat Street 3/-“.

The chapel, almost in the centre of the town, measured 22’6″(w) 42’6″ (l) 20′ (h) and seated 300. It was opened on Friday and Sunday, July 24th and 26th, when the preachers were  Thomas King, James Bourne and Samuel Bowen. The opening was described by Thomas Butcher in the Primitive Methodist magazine.

This chapel served the church for many years. The debt was ultimately paid off and in 1878 the society moved to Mosley Street, which became the head of the first Circuit.
