Frierson (Frieston?) Primitive Methodist chapel
Fulbeck circuit - but where was it?
The opening of Frierson Primitive Methodist chapel is reported by J Middleton in the Primitive Methodist magazine of 1834. Opening services took place in the Spring of 1834.
We are told very little about the chapel except that it was furnished with forms and, intriguingly, a well built brick pulpit.
There was also the slight problem of where on earth Frierson is (or was). I could not find it on various gazetteers. The fact that it was in Fulbeck circuit suggests it was in Lincolnshire.
Howard Richter comments that he would be astonished if this were to turn out not to be the Frieston (sic) that is east-south-east of Newark and a few miles south of Fulbeck.
The GR is SK 939 477. However on the 1880s Ordnance Survey 1:2,500 map there is no sign of any chapel, 50 years after the opening in the report.
What happened to the chapel and the people who worshipped there?
