Cresselly (Crissilly) Primitive Methodist chapel

The opening of Crissilly (sic) Primitive Methodist chapel in the Swansea circuit is recorded in the Primitive Methodist magazine by J Hibbs.  Opening services took place on 30 September 1838 when the preachers were J Hibbs and “a preacher friend”.

Thanks were particularly due  to J H Allen Esq who gave the land and stone for the building.

The new chapel measured 29′(l) x 18′(w)  x 14′(h).

On the 1865 Ordnance Survey map, a Primitive Methodist chapel is shown at the end of what became Myrtle Grove. The building footprint is still there in 1907, but with no label.  It disappears after that.
