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 before 1918, but we understand it was closed after 1995, and the premises are now in secular use.

Strictly speaking, this place of worship is in Nottinghamshire, though obviously part of Pinxton. As the name of the road suggests it is near its former Railway Station, and just a few blocks down from the Railway Inn. It is built of brick, with 2 pointed arched windows of two lights, and a central porch, with the door at the side, and a similar window at the front. Above the porch is a wide band of stonework, with the inscription "Primitive Methodist". The windows are outlined with matching masonry, providing a very attractive appearance.

Old Maps suggest development of this area of town didn't begin in earnest until the early 20th century - the chapel's first known appearance is on OS 1918 1:2,500, where it is marked as a "U M" (United Methodist) Church. By a 1939 Map, of similar resolution it is marked just "Meth Church".

Though it was still marked with a '+' as a place of worship on my OS Street Atlas of 1995, it appears now to have closed, and its building to be in private ownership.


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.


This Chapel was located at OS grid reference SK4636454431. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:

Further Information

This site provides historical information about churches, other places of worship and cemeteries. It has no affiliation with the churches or congregations themselves, nor is it intended to provide a means to find places of worship in the present day.

Please also remember that the former Primitive Methodist Chapel is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
