Bradford Rehoboth Primitive Methodist chapel in Bowling Old Lane was opened in 1878 and served until 1963.  It was one of the chapels used during the Primitive Methodist Conference held in Bradford in 1911.

The 1878 Primitive Methodist magazine records  the laying of the foundation stones for a new Primitive Methodist chapel at Bowling Old Lane in the Bradford Second Station.

Thanks to Elaine for clarifying where it was located.

  • There seems to be some confusion here with Bowling Back Lane and New Hey Road, with Rehoboth.

    That illustrated is Rehoboth, opened in 1878, architect Thomas Howdill. The society began in a house in 1860 and began renting a room for worship in Gate Street in 1867.  This led to the building of Rehoboth, demolished in the spring of 1963.
