Former Wesleyan Chapel, Keyingham
Former Wesleyan Chapel, Keyingham
On 27 September 1806 Jeremiah Matcham sold a building apparently already in use as a Methodist chapel to a group of thirteen trustees (including himself), and on 20 May 1807 the chapel was registered as a place of worship. The chapel on the south side of Waldby Garth Road was recorded as being thirteen yards long from east to west and eleven yards wide from north to south, which doesn't quite tally with the dimensions of the present barn on the site. The barn does however have the remains of interior plastering (unusual for just a barn) and it may be that the original building was demolished shortly after purchase and a new chapel erected in its place.

The building closed as a place of worship when a new chapel was built on Chapel Lane in 1848, and was later used by the Keyingham Level Drainage Board to house the boat used in clearing Keyingham Drain [information from 'Keyingham and its people - the story of a millennium' ISBN 0 9536486 0 5].
