Primitive Methodist (Former), Cheapside, Anstey

Sitting on the boundary between two houses in Cheapside, a short way from its replacement the Union Chapel built in 1902.  This small wooden chapel was built in the late 19th century and after replacement was used as a meeting room and hall, known locally as The Cabin. In 1988 it was sold to the two adjoining properties called Little Thatch and Oakwood. At the time of my visit in early September 2018 it was undergoing reconstruction. It is difficult to determine how much of the original building remains. The bottom right image shows the reconstructed building in January 2019.

Union Chapel, Anstey

At the north end of this isolated village in the north east of the county. An independent congregation, the building dates from 1902. It was built as a Primitive Methodist church to replace a wooden building called “The Cabin” in Cheapside.
