Sheffield Hodgson Street Primitive Methodist chapel

Sheffield Hodgson Street Primitive Methodist school chapel
Christian Messenger 1899/273

The 1880 Primitive Methodist magazine tells us they were in the course of building a new chapel in Hodgson Street. For years they had been meeting in a room in adjacent Edmund Street, but this became crowded – the Sunday school had 125 pupils and 16 teachers.

The new chapel would consist of a large hall for services and school work, and two vestries.  It would cost around £1,000.

Part of Hodgson Street still exists, but the original terraced houses have been replaced by modern commercial buildings.
