[former] Market Drayton Primitive Methodist Chapel

This large & imposing polychrome-brick chapel, called "Ebenezer", was erected in 1867. In 1984 the building was converted to community use. It replaced an earlier chapel in Ranters Gullet, off Cheshire Street, which was built in 1825. In the 1851 Religious Census it was reported to have 150 sittings. On census Sunday there were 140 worshippers at their afternoon service and 150 at their evening one. There were also 90 children at their Sunday School. In 1851 it was described as too small for the number of hearers, and a new chapel "will shortly be built",
