The Primitive Methodist magazine tells us that the memorial stones of Boswick (sic) Primitive Methodist chapel in the Driffield station were laid on Easter Monday, April 2nd,  1888. The 1888 date confirms this as Beswick.

The site was given by Lord Hotham

The October 1888 magazine confirms that the chapel was opened; the services were well attended and all the letable seats were let.
