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 1905, but we understand it was closed before 1937.

A Primitive Methodist Chapel at Leabrooks is mentioned in Kelly's Directory of 1932 under the entry for Somercotes. A comparison of its position on Old Maps shows that it occupied the site where Peniel Church is now.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 24th September 1907 (p.6447) indicates its registration for marriages:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named PRIMITIVE METHODIST CHURCH, situated at Lea Brooks, in the civil parish of Alfreton, in the county of Derby, in Belper registration district, was, on the 21st September, 1907, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6th and 7th Wm. IV, c.85. Dated 23rd September 1907.

A similar notice, for "the Building formerly known as METHODIST CHAPEL situated at Lea Brooks in the civil parish of Alfreton" published in the Gazette of 16th April 1937 (p.2485) indicated the cancellation of its registration as a place of worship, but it probably closed before that, as its successor, the Peniel Church, is shown on Old Maps of that year.

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.
