  1. @Andy Millne on the Bygone Bedlington Facebook group a member who lives in the converted Bedlington (Primative) Methodist Chapel was asking if anyone had any photos of the chapel before it was converted into apartments. I did some searching and one site that was returned was https://www.myprimitivemethodists.org.uk and on the site was n 1851 census entry with a date of 1828 for when the chapel was built.
