Cemeteries

We believe the Church did NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded before 1879, but we understand it was closed before 1995.

This building is listed in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) with a location of "Little Moor". It is a single cell building of weathered gritstone, with a date plaque on the apex, which is not entirely readable from Google StreetView, but (with a little imagination) may say "Primitive Methodist".

Its first known appearance on Old Maps is OS 1879-80 1:2.500, where it is marked as "Methodist Chapel (Primitive)". The plot on the opposite (west) side of the road is marked as having a Trough and two Pumps, so obviously there was plenty of water to be had in the area!

It is still marked with a '+' on my OS Map of 1979 1:50,000 but surprisingly, it is not mentioned with Ashover in Kelly's Directories of 1895 or 1932, when comparable Nonconformist and Church Mission Rooms at Alton are. None of them are shown on my Derbyshire Street Atlas of 1995, however, and there seems to be little doubt that it is now closed, as today (2011) it appears to be part of the premises of a newly built bungalow.

Denomination

Now or formerly Primitive Methodist.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
