Talk o'th Hill Primitive Methodist chapel

Talk o’th Hill Primitive Methodist chapel was opened on October 14th 1838.  J Grieves writes about it in the Primitive Methodist magazine.   Opening speakers were Bro Bateman, Bro Jeffries and Sister Crosley.

The new chapel which had a gallery on three sides measured 33’8″(l) x 30’8″(w) x 21′(h). The occasion is described as a re-opening so there could have been a previous chapel.

Talke was then in the Tunstall circuit; it later became head of a circuit in its own right.

Where was this chapel? On the 1879 there is a Primitive Methodist chapel north of Talke at Coalpit Hill and one south at Talke Pits.  Was it either of these?  Does it or the society still exist?
