Thirn Wesleyan Methodist chapel

Thirn Wesleyan Methodist chapel

An enquiry to the My Primitive Methodist website  – one of the Methodist Heritage Community websites – prompted the discovery of the former Wesleyan Methodist chapel at Thirn in North Yorkshire.

The chapel appears on Ordnance Survey maps of 1891, 1911 and 1927.  By 2022 it had been converted to residential use.

What’s the story?

  • The official story is that the trust was formed in 1835, so it existed from then on, and was always in the Bedale Circuit. It appears in the 1851 “Religious Census” and all published lists of Wesleyan Methodist chapels until 1940 (see the 1873 and 1940 returns elsewhere on this site).
    Unfortunately no chapel records seem to have been deposited, so any further information would be very much welcomed.
