Jeff Parsons has provided pictures of and information about Clutton Zion chapel which was part of the United Methodist Free Church connexion. The  chapel is marked on the 1885 Ordnance Survey Map in Marsh Lane, Bendal’s Bridge, Clutton as Zion Chapel (Non Conformist). By the 1903 map it is labelled as Zion chapel (Free Methodist).

It was known locally as the Chapel under the trees, but sadly is no longer there. Jeff  believe it formed part of the Earl of Warwick’s estate, a sizeable portion of which was sold off in the 1940s. On the site of the old chapel is now a detached bungalow.

There is a chance that the chapel was initially a Primitive Methodist building.  You can see more here.
