Duggleby Primitive Methodist chapel

Duggleby Primitive Methodist chapel

Duggleby Primitive Methodist chapel in the Malton circuit was opened on May 1st 1836. We are told about it in the Primitive Methodist magazine by J Day who was one of the opening speakers, along with Mrs Hirst.

The new chapel measured 20′(w) x 24′(l) and came about when a young member bought a small cottage with land enough to build the chapel on.  Farmers lent their teams to carry the bricks and lime etc.

A Primitive Methodist chapel is shown on the north side of Back Side, west of its junction with Stonepit Balk. On Street View there are modern houses on the site.

    I can confirm that there are absolutely no remains of this chapel on a recent visit to the site, just modern housing. 9th Aug 2020.
