In 1807 the house of Richard Penton was registered as a Meeting House for the Whaddon Methodists.

By 1847 they had joined the Primitive Methodist Church and they were meeting together in a house in Whaddon.

The Primitive Methodist Chapel at Whaddon was opened in 1884 with George Dowty as Steward.

In 1985 a Covenant of Partnership was signed by St Mary’s Church and Whaddon Methodist Church and joint services were held on the fifth Sunday of the month. The Chapel was sold to the Roman Catholic Church who have occupied it since 1990.

  • I came across the Parish Council website and copied this which may be of interest – A Wesleyan Methodist chapel was built at Alderbury in 1825 and demolished in 1970. A Primitive Methodist chapel built at Whaddon in 1884 became a Roman Catholic chapel in 1990.

  • The 1885 Primitive Methodist magazine (page 59) contains a note of the opening of a new Primitive Methodist chapel at Whaddon in the Salisbury station. It tells us nothing more
