Somerby Wesleyan Methodist Chapel (i), Leicestershire

Somerby Wesleyan Chapel (i) was built about 1800. When it was about to be sold for £10 to help finance a new chapel, it measured 30 feet by 18 feet.
It has not been possible to establish the position of this building. Could it have been in the Chapel Lane which runs southwards off the main village street a little to the east of the later chapel?
