SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

Primitive Methodist Chapel, Hopton Bank
Primitive Methodist Chapel, Hopton Bank
This is the original Primitive Methodist chapel at Hopton Bank. It was built of rubble-stone in 1837 at a cost of 117, and was opened on Friday 4th August. It soon proved too small, so was enlarged in 1841. The chapel was renovated in 1862 and re-opened on 6th April. The commemorative stone is still extant, but feint and difficult to read. The building is now converted to residential use. The adjoining plot of land was bought in 1860 at a cost of 20 for use as a burial ground. The chapel was replaced by a new building, "Bethel", in 1881.
