Washington, Concord, Manor Road, PM Chapel (Masonic Hall)
Religious Ritual and Funerary
Primitive Methodist Chapel
Late 19th century Primitive Methodist Chapel later Masonic Hall. Rectangular, hipped roof, pebbledashed, traces of arched windows on east. In an area now largely devoid of any buildings pre-dating the mid-20th century, and disguised by its current coat of pebbledash, this former Masonic Hall appears to be a late-19th century Primitive Methodist Chapel and is of value as regards its social history. Needs further examination, but its shell may survive largely intact. Suggested as a contender for Listed Building Status by Peter Ryder.
