Mexborough Primitive Methodist chapel

location of former Primitive Methodist chapel in Mexborough

By Christopher Hill

In the Primitive Methodist magazine of 1860 RJ Lewis describes the re-opening of Mexborough Primitive Methodist chapel - although he doesn't say why it had been closed.

"Mexborough, Doncaster Circuit.—Our chapel at this place was re -opened for Divine worship on Sunday, September 30th, I860. Sermons were preached by the Rev.C. Lace, of Sheffield, and Sir. J. Ratcliffe, of Doncaster ; the attendance was good, and the services interesting.

On Monday, October 1st, a public tea was held, to which about 150 persons sat down. After tea Mr. Siddle, from Wath, was called to the chair, and addresses were given by Messrs. Monkman, Oates, and J. Ratcliffe. The people were gratified, and the services of the re-opening harmonized with the efforts of the friends who have given or collected the cost of the improvements without touching the ordinary income ; the sum expended being about £15."

There is a former Primitive Methodist chapel at 82A Bank St S64 9LL used  as a Motorists Centre.  Is that the chapel described in the 1860 magazine?
