Birmingham, Erdington, High Street (New Street), Primitive Methodist Chapel was probably built in the mid 1880s. It was the only building in it’s side of New Street in 1887. In 1940 it was said to have seating for 508 in pews, two schoolrooms and five other rooms. Like many chapels of its date this building is a curious mixture of styles. The façade in mainly Gothic but the porch is supported by capitals of loosely Ionic design and the glazing above looks contemporary with construction. It has not been established when the chapel closed. The building is now a transformation life centre.
