Hawrigg (Hawkrigg) Primitive Methodist chapel

The opening of a new Primitive Methodist chapel in the Barrow circuit at Hawrigg is described by M Moseley in the Primitive Methodist magazine.

In 1869 a revival broke out and fifty people were converted.  As a result, a chapel was erected which seated 150.  It soon had a flourishinig Sunday school.

Where was Hawrigg?  Was it Hawkrigg near New Hutton/Kendal? If so, I can find no Primitive Methodist chapel in the Ordnance Survey maps of the 18902.

Suggestions very welcome
