Lutton Marsh Methodist chapel

Lutton Marsh Methodist Chapel 1936
David Secker

The longstanding Lutton Primitive Methodist Society had members in Lutton Marsh who met in a house, and then a barn from around 1925. They formed the Lutton Marsh New Site Committee with the intention of building a chapel. This was realised in 1936 on the opening of a small edifice at the crossroads of Guys Head Road and Marsh Road. The foundation stone was laid by Sir Richard Winfrey (former MP). However, the completion of the building came soon after union so was not strictly ‘Primitive’.

This chapel is still open.

  • My great, great uncle (William Jacob Warren) was a Pastor on the circuit when this chapel was built (Long Sutton, I believe). He was present at the stone-laying ceremony and at the inaugural opening service. As a Pastor on the circuit, he would have been here several times. Although I can’t find any evidence, there is a stone that bears the inscription ‘W W’ on the wall, which I wonder if it was a stone laid by him or if the ‘W W’ is the initials for someone else. Any further information greatly received. I’m particularly interested in this circuit between 1933-1937 (for obvious reasons).
