A meeting house certificate was granted for a new chapel for Independent Methodists on 29th September 1821. The chapel was the property of John Pearce Sweetapple and the application by William Sanger, a gentleman of Salisbury. The chapel opened on Monday 1st October 1821. Apparently another chapel was built here by Primitive Methodists in c.1845 but it is possible that the Independent Methodist group became Primitive Methodists. On Census Sunday in 1851 the were three services, with 14 people attend the morning one, 48 in the afternoon and 51 in the evening. A new chapel was built on the east side of the lane from Littlecott to Upavon in 1896 and the chapel continued to flourish into the 20th century.
