Wootton Primitive Methodist Chapel

Chapel House, Wootton - probably next door to the former chapel. See David Leese' comment.

Wootton Primitive Methodist chapel

Wootton is a small village situated between Ramsor and Ellastone. It is at the bottom of the Weaver hills, and was locally referred to as “Wooton under Weaver, where God came never.”

In 1851 it did have Wesleyan and Primitive chapels, and featured on the Ramsor Primitive Methodist plan.

The precise location of the chapel is not at present known.

  • Thank you for this very helpful.
    The building to the north of the arrow marking the chapel is now called Chapel House, and my observation is that it is more probable that this was the house next to the chapel, rather than the chapel converted. It is a green space today. I will post a photograph.

    Also Dinah Morris is the fictional name of Elizabeth Evans nee Tomlinson.

  • This chapel is described by C.F. Stell on page 223 of ‘An inventory of nonconformist chapels and meeting-houses in Central England’ (1986). The grid reference is SK106451, which allows us to find it on the various 25 inch maps of the area, and I have added a map to David’s page. Dinah Morris seems to have been associated with it (according to various other pages on this site) In 1940 it was still open, with space for 50 on forms.
