Middlesbrough South Bank Primitive Methodist chapel in Normanby Road, is a substantial brick building, erected in 1878, and capable of seating 700 persons. The building is shown on Google Street View in 2012 as The Settlement – South Bank Youth and Community Centre.  However, it was also available for sale or to let.

Information about it is scarce.  What was its life like?  What has happened to it since?

  • Thanks very much for the update. It’s good to know that the chapel – and the legacy of the chapel’s founders – continues and is being used creatively.
