    This has been on the radar for a while but has managed to evade me so when I get a text from Jazzywheelz that he has spotted something we decide to strike while the iron is hot.

    With the fug of red wine and curry hanging over me, I dragged my arse out of bed and made an undignified entrance.

    There's not much history about this place available, other than it opened in 1868 as a Primitive Methodist chapel.
    (The Primitives were a radical breakaway group of the Methodist church and also had a Top Ten hit in 1988 with Crash).

    To make up for the lack of info, have a picture of a banner.

    The church finally closed its doors around 2008.

    A bizarre game of royal tiddlywinks?

    The building has been well-cleared of evidence of its past, in fact the only religious text we found was one page from a bible in the bottom of a box.

    Not the most inspiring of sites, but if you don't kiss the frogs...
