Lidgett Grove Methodist Church stands on the western side of Wheatlands Grove, opposite Shirley Avenue in Acomb. A temporary Wesleyan chapel was opened on a site adjacent to Beckfield Lane and Lidgett Grove in 1934, and the present red brick chapel was completed in 1937. The pulpit in the chapel is claimed to be that used by John Wesley when he visited the church of St Mary Castlegate, and which was subsequently used in Peckitt Street New Connexion Chapel.
