The following two paragraphs are from The Story of a Dorset Village Edited by REV. J. H. COOKE Rector of Shillingstone, published privately in 1921.
Hutchins (1874) says there is a Wesleyan Methodist Meeting House, built 1853-4 the Public Record Office in a Calendar of Trust Deeds relating to charities, at p 866, is: “A piece of land in the Parish (Shillingstone) for Wesleyan Methodist Connexion—1854”.
In the year 1904 a new chapel, and school-room were built by public subscription. The builder was H. Hayward, of Blandford. The site on, the side of the Blandford road was presented by the late Viscount Portman. The building cost £866, and is capable of seating 150 while the schoolroom will accommodate 60. The minister of the Circuit at this time was the Rev. E. Standfast. The chapel mentioned by Hutchins above has been converted into cottages.
The first chapel stood just to the northwest of where the footpath continuation of Candy’s Lane now meets Hine Town Lane. I am not sure that the cottages referred to above still stand; I cannot see anything relevant. It would have been where no 17 Hine Town Lane now stands.
The 1904 chapel on the A357 is now a house. The Dorset History Centre has various Minutes and other documents at reference NM-7/S/26/
