Primitive Methodist Chapel, Westgate

  • Description

    "The two parts of the building date from 1824 and 1871, the original chapel becoming a schoolroom. It is one of the best preserved examples of its kind in the north, and has been managed by the Historic Chapels Trust since 2009. Westgate was the main centre for Primitive Methodism in Weardale. The chapel is outstanding in that it retains its Victorian layout complete with a full set of pews and original windows. A public meeting was recently held to discuss the future of the building."
