Prees Primitive Methodist Chapel
Prees Primitive Methodist Chapel
The foundation stones of this chapel, which has no datestone, were laid on Tuesday 5th April 1892. The tender by the builder Mr R. Powell for 679 was accepted. The chapel opened on the 29th September of that year & celebrated its centenary in 1992. The building was registered for the solemnization of marriages on 11th October 1893. The old chapel was to be taken down and "all good materials used in the new one". It is still in use by the Methodist Church in 2020, having been joined by the United Reformed Church in recent years. There was a previous Primitive Methodist chapel in Prees, erected in 1836. It was certified as a place of worship on 18th November 1836 by Thomas Adams of Market Drayton. In 1851 was described as "small." It had sittings for about 100 worshippers, and on census Sunday in 1851 there were 63 at their afternoon service and 66 at their evening one.
