Willington Primitive Methodist chapel, Flintshire
a mystery chapel
The 1851 religious census lists a Primitive Methodist chapel built in 1840 in Willington, Flintshire. It had a morning congregation of 82 (+ 41 in the Sunday school), 24 (+ 40 scholars) in the afternoon, and an evening congregation of 230.
It must have been a big building, unless the evening congregation overflowed to the outside, but I have recognised no other reference to it, not in the Primitive Methodist Magazine, nor the Oswestry and Prees Green Circuit archives, nor the 1873 25-inch Ordnance Survey map, which identifies chapels by denomination. What was it? Where was it? Is the building still there, even if no longer a chapel?
Part of the problem is that Willington seems to sprawl with no obvious centre and to extend over several OS maps. And the answer does not seem to be Threapwood, which used to be in Flintshire, as that place is listed elsewhere in the Census. Can anyone help?
