Wiltshire Community History

Primitive Methodist Chapel, Zeals

The chapel was built in 1852 on land that was probably given by Benjamin Perfect. The lane around the chapel soon became known as Chapel Lane while the chapel attracted small independent tradesmen and poorer agricultural workers to its congregation. There was seating for 100 people, with more space in a gallery. In 1915 the chapel was extended and a schoolroom was built, which accommodated around 20 children at Sunday School in the 1920s. By 1973 there were only 11 members of the chapel and they joined with the Bourton Wesleyan Methodists to form a Methodist Church. The chapel was sold and converted to a private house.
