Notes on Church:
The 1896 Chapel has a very striking Entrance Front in an Italianate style. It was built with a schoolroom at the back of the Chapel, and smaller rooms on the left hand side. In 1976 the entrance was moved from the front to the left hand side, and a folding screen was fitted to divide the Chapel into 2 spaces. A false ceiling was also fitted which obscures the high roof.

Introduction to Stained Glass:The Primitive Methodist Chapel was built in 1896, and we assume that the glass was all original to the building. It matched in all the windows, and is in patterns of coloured quarries, in square, diamond and triangular patterns. Like the ornate Italianate front of the Chapel, it is surprising to find so much coloured glass in a Primitive Methodist Chapel. More...
As the chapel was re-arranged in 1976, 3 windows were blocked up on the Left Hand wall at that time. The upper window in the Front still retains its glass, but was blocked off inside when a false ceiling was fitted.
