Derby wooden Primitive Methodist chapel

bought second hand from the School Board

The 1888 Primitive Methodist magazine tells us that somewhere in Derby, in an area where there was no Non-conformist place of worship, the Primitive Methodists started a mission.  Three years later they bought second hand from the School Board a redundant wooden building that had been in use as a school and fitted it our as a chapel.

Strenuous efforts were being made to meet the whole of the cost within the coming twelve months.

That’s all the article tells us – apart from a spirit of optimism.

Where was this chapel? Is it part of the story of one of the other Derby chapels on this site?
