There were two Wesleyan chapels here, one built in 1880 to seat about 100 and another built in 1838 with only room for 50 worshipers. The Primitive Methodists also had a chapel, erected in 1874 at Thorpe Bank. For information and assistance in researching these chapels, see our non-conformist religions page.
Thorpe St. Peter is both a village and a parish that lie north of Boston, just inland from the North Sea and about 125 miles north of London. Croft parish forms the eastern border and Wainfleet All Staints lies to the south. The parish covers just over 3,100 acres.
If you are planning a visit:
The village of Thorpe St. Peter lies along the B1195 trunk road from Wainfleet to Spilsby.
The Hall in Thorpe St Peter has been demolished, sometime in the last fifty years. The site is shown on the current Ordnance Survey map as a "Moat", conveniently close to the village Inn and Church. [Ken FORMAN]
