Manningham Primitive Methodist chapel in Heaton Road, Bradford, was one of the chapels used during the Primitive Methodist Conference when it was held in Bradford in 1911.

In Manningham, Salem Primitive Methodist chapel in Daisy Hill which held 236 people was erected in 1835 and a school-chapel in 1877.

Heaton Road Chapel was erected in 1879.  The 1879 Primitive Methodist magazine records  the laying of the foundation stones for the new Primitive Methodist chapel at Manningham which was in the Skipton Circuit.

Heaton Road chapel closed in 1959.  On Google Street View in 2015 it is in use as a carpet warehouse.

  • This entry is confused with that of Daisy Hill which was a separate society.

    Manningham was opened 1879, the architect being Thomas Howdill.

  • I remember Heaton Road Church, but it did not close until well in the 60s.  I went to service there in 1964. Heaton Road and the Manningham Methodist Church then closed and with the sale of St Johns the three congregations joined to build the Trinity Methodist Church in Lillycroft
