Levening (Leavening) Primitive Methodist chapel

York Road, Leavening, Malton YO17 8DB

Levening Primitive Methodist chapel (now usually spelled Leavening) in the Hull circuit was opened on Sunday 8th October 1820.

The preacher at the opening was John Verity, who wrote an account of it in the Primitive Methodist magazine.

There is a picture of the chapel on York Road/ Main Street here. As it says, the chapel was demolished to be replaced by a house. All that is left is the run of railings that used to stand in front of the chapel

  • Both Acklam and Leavening had their own Primitive Methodists Chapels.

    There was a Primitive Methodist Chapel marked on both the OS Maps, one surveyed in 1891 but published in 1893 and the following one surveyed in 1909 but published in 1910 for both the villages of Acklam and Leavening.

    Also both had a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel at these dates.
