Hinton Primitive Methodist chapel

Return from Hinton Primitive Methodist preaching place in the 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious Worship
Provided by David Tonks

The 1851 Census of Public Places of Religious Worship contains a report for the Primitive Methodist society in Hinton in the Westbury District. The society met in a converted cottage; the Registrar notes that the building “was formerly used as a cottage but purchased for the purpose of preaching in and now only used for that purpose.”

Average afternoon and evening attendance was 20 people.

The return was completed by the Steward, Lot Miles of Littleton near Melksham.
