Brawby is a small village in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire.

The Methodist chapel sits within a row of modern houses but once it may have stood on the edge of Brawby on its own. In the statistical records of 1972  the chapel is listed as being built in 1889. Looking at the chapel plaque the date is clearly written as 1838. Which is correct? Looking on Google Map and from a local person’s knowledge the chapel probably closed for worship around about ten years ago. After some neglection it has now been converted into pleasing accommodation.

  • The Ordnance Survey map published in 1856 clearly shows both Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist chapels, so the stone will be correct. https://maps.nls.uk/view/102344533

    The 1851 “Religious Census” will no doubt give further details. if you wish to make a free download from The National Archives website, it will be on the return for Malton.
