Flixton Primitive Methodist chapel
Keith Guyler 2000

The first Primitive Methodist chapel at Flixton was built in 1821 and this is the one in Keith Guyler’s photograph. By 1971 it had become a cottage named ‘The Old Methodist Chapel’.

A second chapel was built in 1841 but later closed.

  • Thanks for the comment Jayah. I’ve corrected the text.

    I’ve had a look at old Ordnance Survey maps of Flixton from 1889 and 1926, and they show two Methodist chapels from different sorts of Methodists – the chapel in the picture here which is labelled Primitive Methodist and one a bit further east, close to the junction with Back Lane which is labelled Wesleyan Methodist which I guess is where you live. Sorry for the confusion.

  • The house in the photo is not the old chapel, it is the old methodist chapel. I in fact live down the road in the actual old chapel
