Wetherby Primitive Methodist chapel

William Youlle tells us in  the Primitive Methodist magazine that in 1848 Wetherby Primitive Methodists bought a second hand Independent chapel for £164 12s. 6d.. It was a substantial stone built building, well lighted and with a front gallery.

It opened on January 30th 1848. Speakers included J Bywater (Hull) and Miss Walker (Penhow) They would be left with a debt of £100, but all the let-able accommodation had been taken up.

The 1879 Primitive Methodist magazine records  the laying of the foundation stones for a Primitive Methodist schoolroom at Wetherby and its subsequent opening.
