Comments about this page

  • The 1894 Primitive Methodist magazine (page 77) tells us that the Primitive Methodist society at Meanwood Road had just laid the foundation stones for a new chapel.. They had previously met in an old public house, rented for the purpose!

    The chapel still exists in 2020, in use by the Seventh Day Adventists. Can you supply a picture?
