Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel 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 in 1833, but we understand it was closed in 1909.

The Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/450/2/8/15) records that a Primitive Methodist Chapel was founded at "Castleton Town Head" in 1833. It was used "exclusively as a place of Worship not as Sunday School", and had free seating for 90, and no "other" sittings. The expected attendance on March 30, 1851 was 9 worshippers at morning service, 15 in the afternoon, and 62 in the evening. The returning officer was John Butler, "Class Leader", who was a "Farmer & Cattle Dealer".

Its location at Town Head is shown on OS Maps of 1880 and 1898 1:2,500, labelled as "Methodist Church (Primitive)". Later Maps, for instance OS 1921-1922, show its replacement in How Lane, built in 1909. Private housing now occupies the site of the original chapel, which - possibly - incorporates some of the original building, but this is by no means certain.

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.
