Holme End Primitive Methodist chapel

Hulme End?

By Christopher Hill

The Primitive Methodist magazine for 1835 contains an account by R Jukes of the opening of a Primitive Methodist chapel in Holme End in the Ramsor circuit.

As the Ramsor circuit is strongly Staffordshire based, it is likely that Holme End is actually Hulme End, north of Ashbourne. There are pictures of an 1854 chapel in the village here.

In the building of the society and 1834 chapel, "Mr Charles Mitchell & Mr T Mellor have laboured much and subscribed liberally. We feel grateful". Opening services took place from November 16th 1834 and were conducted by R Jukes, James Bourne and Miss E Allen.
