Tipton Aston Street Primitive Methodist chapel

Aston Street Tipton DY4 0HP

The 1867 Register of chapels lists four Primitive Methodist chapels in Tipton – Aston Street, Bell Street, Railway Street and Toll End.

The chapel in Aston Street, Toll End, appears on the 1885  Ordnance Survey map; by 1901  there is also a Sunday school building marked extending north along Toll End Road..  By the 1938 map it is labelled as a Methodist church, On Street View in 2009 there is a green area with trees on the site.

I’m a little confused, because Aston Street is in Toll End (although not being local I may be wrong!) and the 1867 Register lists them as separate chapels. The Annals of Tipton website tells us a little more about one of them.  “The chapel was built at Toll End in 1842 at a cost of £409. It was later modified to  seat 487 people.”

​Original Registers are kept at Sandwell Archives for Baptisms 1846-1904 & 1931-1967 and   Marriages 1951-1965.
