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 in 1906, but we understand it was closed in 1993.

This Chapel was situated on the south east corner of the junction of Bagshaw Road with Poplar Drive. It is labelled as Primitive Methodist on Old Maps of 1920-1921, and Kelly's Directory of 1932 records that a Primitive Methodist chapel was built at Pleasley Hill in 1906. Other Maps are less specific and record it simply as "Church" or "PW", the latest covering a period 1984-1993.

Its closure was recorded by the following notice in The London Gazette of 20th May 1993 (p.8830):

The Registrar General, being satisfied that ... PLEASLEY HILL METHODIST CHURCH, Poplar Drive, Pleasley Hill, Mansfield, in the registration district of Mansfield in the Non-Metropolitan County of Nottinghamshire, [is] no longer used as places of worship by the congregation on whose behalf [it was] registered for marriages in accordance with the Marriage Act 1836, has cancelled their registrations. Dated 17th May 1993.

It is not known when it was demolished, but in the present day, its site is occupied by new housing.


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.
