Which New Brighton?

New Brighton, North Wales

There are two places in north-east Wales called New Brighton, one near Wrexham and one near Mold. Each once had a Wesleyan chapel. Click here to read something of the background of the one near Wrexham, called Hermon: www.primitivemethodism.com – a website which focuses on primitive Methodism (with a small p), that is, original, as when John Wesley referred towards the end of his long life to “the primitive Methodists”.

  • I took services here for a few years when I was Chair of Cymru District of the Methodist Church 2001-2013.
    The service was at 2 p.m. on Sundays and 6 elderly members attended There was no organist so we sang the hymns unaccompanied. The secretary was Mr. Raymond Hughes who told me the chapel was erected following the 1914-18 War. It was made in numbered sections to make it easy to construct. I seem to remember the cost was £100. Sadly it closed a few years ago.
