Dinnington Primitive Methodist chapel

Dinnington Primitive Methodist chapel and school
Christian Messenger 1918/10

“The establishment of a Society at Dinnington was made possible through the discovery of coal. A wooden hut which was the first meeting-place, but this was soon left for the superior accommodation of a School-Chapel, which has been altered and enlarged at various times since. “

I cannot find a Primitive Methodist chapel marked on Ordnance Survey maps and the current Dinnington Methodist church looks nothing like it.  Where was it and what happened to it.

  • The OS 25″ map 192 – 1914 shows a PM Chapel on Front Street, a few plots west of the White Swan Inn.

    NZ20316 73369

    Yet the stone above the door is engraved as Wesleyan Methodist Church 1864 (need to visit to confirm the date)

  • Thanks John. That’s an interesting location; on the 1928/30 25″ OS map, the building between the labour exchange and the school is marked as a Wesleyan chapel (but even OS maps are occasionally inaccurate). There is another Wesleyan chapel nearby , on Laughton Road – the current Dinnington Methodist church.

  • Dinnington Trinity in the 1940 statistical return is listed in the Kiveton Park Circuit and was situated in Laughton Road In a map I have dated 1930 it was at the junction of Quarry Lane and between a school and the Labour Exchange. The chapel had a large piece of land that was sold soon after. It was certified for worship 19 June 1906 and sold in 1974 for £5000.I have just acquired material which is being evaluated before being deposited in Sheffield archives. I do also have a list of the trustees in 1974.
