The first Primitive Methodist Chapel, called "Bethel" was built in Edgmond in 1834-5 on a site on the main road through the village and opened on 11th January 1835. The chapel was 22ft by 18ft containing 8 small pews. Before that they used to worship in a house whose owner was fined for holding meeting there.This early chapel no longer exists. A new chapel (photographed) with its own burial ground was built in 1860 at a cost of 135. It was in use as a Methodist chapel until 8 May 2016, when the last service was held, due to declining attendance.
