[former] Primitive Methodist Chapel, High Street, Shifnal
The first Primitive Methodist chapel in Shifnal was built about 1860 & by 1909 it was described as "soon [to] be a thing of the past." Plans were made for the erection of a "more down to date & commodious chapel". In February 1909 tenders were invited for the building of a new small chapel immediately adjacent to the old chapel. The architects Elijah Jones and Jackson of Wellington designed a chapel in the romanesque style in brick with stone dressings to cost about 300. There was to be capacity for 200 worshippers. The foundation stones were laid of the 21st May 1909 and the chapel opened on the 22nd September following. Its subsequent history is not known yet.
