In 1816 a house and field belonging to Thomas Truckle was licensed for worship, but little more is known of Methodists here until 1846 when Primitive Methodist services were being held. A mud-walled (clay and chopped heather) chapel was built to the north of Chapel Lane (by 1856?) and this served until c.1880 when it was replaced by a brick building surrounded by iron railings.

In 1901 a new chapel was erected on the top of a low hill, next to the Lamb. The 1881 chapel became a schoolroom. ┬áThe notes with Keith Guyler’s picture say that his picture is the 1881 chapel; however his picture is of the chapel near the Lamb. ┬áCan anyone cast light on my confusion?

The society is still active.
