[former] Primitive Methodist Chapel, Perthy, near Welsh Frankton
The date of this Primitive Methodist Chapel's erection is not yet known but it was in existence by 7 August 1860 when it was certified as a place of worship. There had been a Primitive Methodist cottage meeting held in the house of Hannah Batho, widow, (whose son Stephen was a local P.M. preacher for 45 years & d. 1879) in Perthy by 1851. It appears in the 1851 Religious Census when there were 20 worshippers at their morning service, 44 in the afternoon and 52 in the evening. As Hannah Batho died in 1852 it may have prompted the congregation to build their own chapel. Once the chapel had been built it stayed in use until sometime after 1961 and was de-registered as a place of worship on 14th May 1971. It has now been converted to residential use and is unrecognisable as a former chapel. However, the name plate on the house says "Chapel House".
