SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

Primitive Methodist chapel, Bellevue, Shrewsbury
Primitive Methodist Chapel, Bellevue, Shrewsbury
This chapel was built in 1879 as a railwayman's church. It was said when the memorial stones were laid on the 17th March 1879 that it would be a handsome little chapel, which, they trusted, would add to the strength and influence of their society in that ancient town. The architect of the chapel was John Willis of Derby and the builder was William Harris of Shrewsbury. The chapel as built at a cost of 700 and would seat about 210 worshippers. The chapel opened on the 22nd June 1879. The present inscription above the door has replaced the original inscription which has the words "Primitive Methodist" "1879" underneath, which are just about readable at the present day. The building is still in use as a Methodist chapel in 2018.
