Wombleton Primitive Methodist chapel


The English Heritage directory of of Listed Buildings includes Wombleton Primitive Methodist chapel. The description says:

“Primitive Methodist Chapel. 1819 on lintel, but with earlier origins. Coursed rubble limestone; pantile roof. Rectangular on plan. Single storey: 4-bays Irregular quoins. 4-panel door to left of centre. 16-pane sash with a stone sill to left of door: two similar windows to right. All openings have heavy, milled lintels. The lintel to door has a recessed oval panel inscribed: “Erected by Subscriptions AD 1819″.” The page includes picture dated 2001.

That said, The Wombleton final parish plan of 2011 says that both Prim and Wesleyan chapels have been demolished. The Wesleyan Sunday school remains as Sun Cottage

I cannot find a reference to a Prim chapel on old Ordnance Survey maps, only a Wesleyan one.
