SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

Tibberton Primitive Methodist Chapel Tibberton Primitive Methodist Chapel, Edgmond
Primitive Methodists were holding meetings in Tibberton in 1836-7, possibly at the house of John Whitingham, a local labourer who registered his house as a meeting place on 2 November 1836. A small chapel was built in 1843 at a cost of 128.7s.8d. In 1851 the chapel had seating for 100 worshippers. On Census Sunday 30 March 1851 there were 24 worshippers at their afternoon service and 46 at their evening one. In addition there were 24 children at the Sunday School in the morning and 18 in the afternoon. In 1879 it was lit by gas provided by Messrs. Billing & Son from their paper mills. The building has been considerably altered since then (& indeed looks much more like an early/mid 20th century building), with refenestration, and a new doorway at the gable end in 1933, and an extension at the back for a Sunday school. The chapel was still in use in 2017 but seems to have closed by 2019.
