The Primitive Methodist magazine of February 1853 contains an account by Thomas Worrill of the opening of Brinklow Primitive Methodist chapel in the Rugby mission of the Leicester circuit.

A society in the village of around 500-600 people had been established previously and in the spring of 1852 D Watts and D Harris bought a house and garden in the village at auction for £130. A chapel 25' x 18' was erected in one end of the garden, built of red brick, with a slate roof and a red deal floor. The entire cost was £240 although the house brought in £7/10/0 each year.

At the opening (no date given) sermons were preached by W Watts, W Richardson and W Price.

The chapel is marked on the 1887 1:2,500 Ordnance Survey map but not on later ones.
