Redditch Primitive Methodist chapel

Ipsley Street, Redditch B98 7AA

Redditch Primitive Methodist chapel

In 1890, with a growing congregation, Sunday school and town population, the Primitive Methodist society in Redditch laid the memorial stones for a new chapel and school designed by M. J. Butcher of Birmingham. It was on an “excellent site in one of the best positions in the town” in what was then Alcester Street. After local road building and development the building, which still stands, fronts on to Ipsley Street.

The building cost £1,200 of which they had raised all but £400.

As Ipsley Road Methodist church, the  church closed in December 1999 and was sold for commercial use. In January 2019 it is an estate agents.
