1877: Primitive Methodist Preaching Room

From the Blandford Express July 7th 1877.

‘Charlton Marshall. Primitive Methodist Preaching Room. The opening of this room took place last Thursday evening by a public tea and platform meeting, which were satisfactorily attended. Mr W Hunt who had purchased the cottages – two of which form the said room – took the chair. Suitable addresses were delivered by the Rev J Leach, Messrs Lush, Joyce, &c.’

This preaching room was in The Close above the Church Room. It remained as a Methodist chapel until the congregation transferred to the chapel in Gravel Lane around the turn of the 19th / 20th century. The Gravel Lane chapel eventually closed in 1951.
