Long Melford Primitive Methodist chapel

The 1880 Primitive Methodist magazine tells us that memorial stones had been laid for a new Primitive Methodist chapel at Long Melford in the Halstead mission.

The 1881 Primitive Methodist magazine contains a note reporting the opening of the new Primitive Methodist chapel. It would seat 150, had a vestry and other accommodation and would cost £400 of which they had raised half.

A Primitive Methodist chapel is shown on Ordnance Survey maps on Little St Mary’s, just south of Liston Lane.  It looks like there’s a space on the site on Street View from 2008.

The black & white photograph of the Primitive Methodist chapel (shown by the arrow) in the background is by kind permission of the Long Melford Museum and Heritage Centre. (Does anyone know the make of the period car, driven by a young lady, it looks fairly new.   E & R Pearce. August 2021.
