The first Primitive Methodist in Castleford chapel opened in 1843 in an old stone barn at the junction of what became Albion Street, Church Street and Carlton Street – where the Junction public house later stood. It cost £150 to buy and convert. The Primitive Methodist magazine tells us that in 1849 it was enlarged by more than a third. It was re-opened on October 28th. Preachers at the opening services were G Wellbourn (Burnley), Mrs Wade (Castleford), R Robinson (Silsden) and A Worsnop.
The following tea meeting, chaired by J Harling, was addressed by Messrs Wilson, Partington, Taylor, Gill (Wesleyans), Worsnop, Lancaster, Chappell, Atha, Gee and Morris
The society soon outgrew the chapel and it was replaced by a substantial chapel in Bradley Street. You can read about it here.
