Grassington Primitive Methodist chapel
The opening of Grassington Primitive Methodist chapel is recorded in the Primitive Methodist magazine. The chapel was in the Grassington branch of the Silsden circuit.
Opening celebrations started on 16th July 1837 and the speakers included Bro S Tillotson, S Longden, Bro Judson and Bro Thomas Butcher, who wrote the account.
The chapel had a gallery. It measured 37′(l) x 31′(w) x 24′(h).
Thanks to Philip Thornborow for finding the chapel on Ordnance Survey maps later in the Nineteenth Century – I couldn’t see it. It’s in Garrs End Lane
