[former] East Wall Primitive Methodist Chapel
[former] East Wall Primitive Methodist Chapel
Eaton under Heywood

Primitive Methodists were meeting in East Wall in the 1830s and 1840s. After being given a plot of land by Job Taylor, Esq., they built this small chapel in 1857, having long felt the want of a suitable place of worship. The foundation stones were laid on Good Friday 10 April 1857. In 1891 is was described as "small". Although successful in the 1860s by the end of the century it had only 10 members. The building was sold in 1936. It has been converted into residential accomodation & is hardly recognisable as a former chapel. For a view from the other end, click here.
