Cotonwood a.k.a. Coton Primitive Methodist Chapel
Cotonwood a.k.a. Coton Primitive Methodist Chapel
There were Primitive Methodist meetings in Cotonwood for several decades before a chapel was built. In 1851 they were meeting in a dwelling house and in the Religious Census taken in March of that year they had 33 worshippers at their Sunday evening service. This little chapel was built on land bought on 23rd June 1888 for 25. This was followed on the 4th July by a stone laying ceremony. The chapel cost just over 70 to build. By 1904 the chapel was free of debt. There is a neatly kept burial ground surrounding the chapel with old and modern gravestones in it. The chapel is still in use in 2018.
