The former Primitive Methodist Chapel in Church Street, Nettleton was built about 1860 and was still in use in the 1950s.

Originally there were four bays. The porch is still there behind the chapel.

Headstone from the former Primitive Methodist Chapel now displayed inside the ex-Wesleyan chapel.

In "A List And Brief Details Of Chapels In The Market Rasen & Caistor Circuit Past And Present”  prepared by Colin Shepherdson & Eileen H Mumby September 1997 (Revised August 1998) it is stated that :-

"A Society was extant in 1846 and a chapel, in Church Street, was opened on the 31.10.1858.

The chapel was enlarged and reopened on the 8.12.1872.

The last service was held on the 14.7.1957.

The chapel was sold and used as a builder's office but was subsequently converted in to a house.

(N.B. The headstone was removed from the building and repositioned inside the ex-Wesleyan chapel.)"

A notice displayed inside the chapel states :-

"In 1796 Methodism, came to Nettleton. The Meetings were held in the houses of Henry Spring, Zechariah Featherstone & Robert Applebys. To perpetuate the cause Zechariah gave land for a Chapel and £30 towards its cost.

This chapel, built in 1800, enlarged in 1847, & in 1912 the schoolroom, and, other buildings were added.

The Primitive Methodist Chapel was built in 1858. Its lease expired in 1957 & a joint Society Meeting agreed to unite the two Societies & worship in this chapel which was renovated and reopened on 18 May 1957"
