Hunslet Woodhouse Hill Primitive Methodist Chapel

The 1940 statistical return places the chapel in the Leeds (Joseph Street) Circuit. The chapel is brick built seating 345 in pews. There was one hall and two other rooms. The 1973 return records that the building was erected in 1901. It is now known as Hunslet Methodist Church.

Editor’s note (CH 06/20)

Thanks to Erica Hartley for explaining that the  current (2020) Hunslet Methodist church is a newer building nearby the former Primitive chapel.  It was an amalgamation in the early 1980’s of 3  Hunslet Methodist Churches  including Woodhouse Hill.

There is a photo of the back of the former Primitive chapel on the Leodis Website, which is a local old photograph website.

The building is no longer there, and there are houses on the site now.  A lot of that area changed when the M621 was created.
