Friday St, Lower Quinton Primitive Methodist chapel

Lower Quinton  parish was in Gloucestershire until 1931 but is now in Warwickshire. A piece of land at the end of Friday Street was bought in 1864 in order to build a Primitive Methodist chapel. It belonged to the Stratford circuit. The congregation soon dwindled, however, and the chapel was sold to Anne Watson for £110 in 1885. The bundle of conveyance papers lists the trustees involved; it also refers to the 1820 Deed Poll by Hugh Bourne, James Bourne and William Clowes enrolled in the High Court of Chancery and includes a copy of the ‘Model Trust Deed and Title Deed Form’ a printed handbook published by the Primitive Methodist Connexion in 1874.

This chapel appears on the 1st edition OS map (1880s) but not in Trade Directories for Gloucestershire. It was used as a Parish Room and then a WI hall in the mid-20th century and is now a Well Being Centre called ‘Heaven’ for hairdressing etc.
