    The report and photographs are not of the former chapel but rather of the Sunday School room erected in 1929. This building, never used as a chapel, was added to the north wall of the 1872 Primitive Chapel. The foundation stone of the schoolroom was laid by James Blindell MP. Both chapel and schoolroom closed in 1962 and stood disused until the chapel's demolition in 1965. The schoolroom was sold and used as commercial premises. It is now a private domestic dwelling. I remember the chapel well and was present when demolished. It had four bays, east porch, and three lancet-style windows to the south overlooking the former New Inn pub. A report concerning the chapel's demolition and reference to the schoolroom, together with photo, was published by the Spalding Guardian 22nd October 1965.

Former Primitive Methodist Chapel, Lutton Bank, Lutton Marsh

Former Primitive Methodist chapel at Lutton Bank, Lutton Marsh. Now disused.


The chapel is indicated on the 1931 Ordnance Survey County Series map. One of the eroded foundation stones suggests that it was built in the early 20th century but is unclear. An earlier Primitive Methodist chapel is known to have been built in Lutton in 1834 according to documentary sources. This current building may have replaced that chapel, though it appears to have had two cells on the county map. The smaller cell, which no longer exists, may possibly have been the earlier chapel. The chapel was in use as an outlet for church vestments from 1973 until October 2009. It now appears to be disused. The extant chapel is built of red brick with stone dressings and a gabled roof with modern tiles. The south-east gable is raised and a modern portakabin now adjoins this rendered elevation. The broad front elevation has five bays with a central doorway flanked by flat-headed casement windows with stone sills and lintels. The original doorway is obscured by a modern porch, but a moulded, flat, stone hood resting on stone brackets belonging to the original doorway is visible above. The original iron railings and gate survive. {1}{2}{3}{4}{5}
