Tipton Bell Street Primitive Methodist chapel

Tipton Bell Street Primitive Methodist chapel

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

Thanks to David Redhead for information from Sandwell Archives about Bell Street.  The chapel was built in 1823 at a cost of £440 and enlarged in 1861.  The chapel closed in 1977.

The Archives hold 125 items dated from 1859 to 1978 about the chapel and the circuit of which it was head.

The chapel was located at the north west segment of the junction of Bell Street with Chapel Street.  In 2020 there are modern flats on the site.  The Manse provided for the minister was at 49 Sedgley Road, Tipton DY4 8AB.  In 2022 it still  carries a carved stone saying “The Manse 1908.”
