Kings Norton Primitive Methodist chapel

In the Primitive Methodist magazine of 1839, S Tillotson tells us of the opening of Kings Norton Primitive Methodist chapel.  The celebration services started on August 12th 1838.

The new chapel was quite small, measuring 18′(l) x 14′(w), but soon after opening the society had doubled the congregation and started a Sunday school.

Mr Tillotson tells us that the society was indebted to Mrs Whieldon for her zealous and persevering efforts and her liberal donation.

I cannot see a Primitive Methodist chapel in King’s Norton on Ordnance Survey maps from later in the Nineteenth Century.  Where was this chapel and what happened to it?

  • A (former) Primitive Methodist Chapel is listed at Kings Norton in the 1940 Statistical Returns of Methodist Church Buildings. It was made of iron, seated 120 on chairs and had one additional room.
