SHROPSHIRE NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

[former] Lockley Wood Primitive Methodist Chapel
[former] Primitive Methodist Chapel, Lockley Wood
The local Primitive Methodists began meeting in Lockley Wood c. 1862. They rented a cottage and soon bought a plot of land for 5. They built a chapel at a cost of 75, measuring 24' by 21', with rising pews. The chapel opened for worship on 27th December 1863. In 1864 the deeds of the chapel and its school were registered as a charitable trust. The chapel was completely renovated in 1896. It was marked as a chapel on the 1946 edition of the Ordnance Survey 1" map but must have closed afterwards. There is a house on the site now, but whether it is an adaptation or a substantial rebuild of the former chapel is not yet certain.
