Harborough Magna Primitive Methodist chapel

Thanks to Anne Langley for the following information:

Harborough Magna. The 1851 religious census lists an Ebenezer Primitive Methodist chapel, built in 1834, with sittings for 100 people: 53 attended the evening service but there was no Sunday school. However, I have not been able to locate this chapel, which does not appear in Warwickshire trade directories nor on OS maps.

The congregation was part of the Rugby Circuit and meetings were held there (for example a camp meeting in 1861). In 1865 they had a tea meeting ‘for the chapel’, but a chapel does not appear in Circuit Records as an asset so perhaps it was sold and demolished in the late 19th century.
