Oldfield Park Primitive Methodist chapel was opened on September 14th 1892 having cost £2,249 to build. The preacher at the opening ceremony was the Rev J Clapham and the collection amounted to just over £4. Membership of the church at that time was recorded at 34 people. The building was on two levels - the lower one was the Sunday School and hall whilst the worship area was upstairs. Local residents will also remember the tin church hall (called the Institute Building on maps and built in 1903) which once stood to the left side of the building. Planning permission was granted for residential conversion into 6 apartments in June 2008 and, after 117 years of worship, the final service was held in October 2009.
