New Faces

(Our trail begins on George Street, in between The Buck Inn and an Indian restaurant.  Use ‘View on map’ from the trail’s homepage to reach point ‘1’ and the start of the trail).

As you compare our archive image with the scene in front of you, it’s hard not to be struck by the difference.  Whilst the basic structure remains intact, the face of the Primitive Methodist Chapel (seen here in 1910) has been replaced to suit the needs of modern retail premises, currently occupied by ‘Pocklington Carpets’.

The absence of the building’s original frontage makes it completely unrecognisable today, but if you look carefully you can just make out the old church building behind the shop front.
