Tickhill Primitive Methodist chapel

Doncaster circuit

Robinson Cheeseman writes in the Primitive Methodist magazine of the opening of Tickhill Primitive Methodist chapel in 1856.

“Tickhill is a town in the Doncaster circuit, containing 3,000 inhabitants, in which we have had a small society for these last four years. An attempt was made three years ago to build a chapel, but the price of building land was so enormous as to preclude the possibility. Just when we were ready to despair of ever succeeding to establish a cause in this town, the Independents offered us their chapel at a yearly rent of £5. It is a good and commodious building, with a gallery over one end, situate in the best part of the town.

The opening services were conducted by Mr. Walls, on Sunday, January 6th, 1856; the congregations were good, and the collections liberal. Providence is opening the way before us in this circuit and our prospects are rising. Several souls have been saved lately and added to the church. May the work still go on.”

I cannot find the chapel on the old Ordnance Survey maps available to me. Where was it? What happened to it?

  • The Independent Chapel in Sunderland Street is marked on the 1854 map, and later maps mark it as Salvation Army Barracks. No map marks it as Primitive Methodist, so perhaps it was a short lived tenancy!
