SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

Primitive Methodist Chapel, Marsh Green
Primitive Methodist Chapel, Marsh Green
Primitive Methodist missionaries are known to have been preaching in Marsh Green in 1839. This little chapel was built in 1841 on land bought for £4.20. It was certified as a place of worship on 19th of August 1841 by William Rooke of Hadnall. It has a later porch added at the front. The commemorative stone reads: "PRIMITIVE/ METHODIST/ CHAPEL/ MDCCCXLI". In 1851 it had seating for 120 worshippers. On Census Sunday 30 March 1851 there were 43 worshippers at their afternoon service and 46 at their evening one. The chapel was in good condition & was still used by the Methodist Church until 2019, & held its last service on Christmas eve of that year. The decline in membership & the effect of the covid restrictions hastened its end. There is no burial ground attached.
