Gilling (East) Primitive Methodist Chapel, North Yorkshire

In 2018 there was very little information relating to this chapel in Gilling. It was built of wood and had seating for 112 persons. There was also one school room.

  • The 1904 Primitive Methodist magazine (pages 833-834 gives some of the wider story. Although the society had existed for a number of years, they had been unable to find a site for a chapel because of the opposition of local land owners. However, due to the “clever statesmanship and persistence” of the local signalman, Charles Watson, a site was rented from the railway company and the chapel was built.

  • I’ve added a report of the opening of the chapel from the Malton Gazette of May 1902.

    It is provided by Sue Goodwill, the Archivist for Ryedale Methodist Circuit, North Yorkshire which covers the old Malton, Pickering, Helmsley and Kirkbymoorside circuits.
