Coate Primitive Methodist chapel
Coate, Swindon SN3 6AA
Primitive Methodism appeared at Coate early in the century, since in 1828 a building occupied there by Joseph Smith was registered for worship by this denomination.
The souvenir Official Handbook of the Brinkworth and Swindon Centenary District Synod held in 1910 records that:
For many years the Services were held in the cottages of Messrs. Webb and Gregory. In 1888 the present building was erected.
Number of sittings: 82
Number of members: 1
Total cost: £117
Present debt: Nil
The building was closed many years ago but is still visible on Google street view from June 2012, looking unused but essentially sound.
