Walpole Primitive Methodist chapel
Church Hill, Walpole IP19 9AX
There is an account by William Crown in the 1860 Primitive Methodist Magazine about the opening of Walpole Primitive Methodist chapel. It says that the society had met in a cottage for a number of years but built a chapel that would seat 130 at a cost of £130 with £52 raised. Opening celebrations included tea for 150.
Opening services from August 19th 1860 were addressed by William Crown, W Hammond and Messrs Goddard and Wilson.
A Primitive Methodist chapel is marked on the 1884 1:2,500 Ordnance Survey map up a footpath to the south of Church Hill. On the 1904 map it is marked a little further west, although in both cases the exact building is not clear. On the 1957 map it is marked (back closer to the original location) as a disused chapel.
