Witton-le-Wear Methodist Church, Witton-le-Wear, Methodist
School Street DL14 0AS,
Methodists first met together in Witton le Wear around 1812, in the home of Thomas Pybourn.
The number of Witton le Wear Methodists increased due to the migration of people from the redundant lead mines of Weardale and beyond, to the new industries of south west Durham and around 1830, the Primitive Methodist Society was formed in the village.
The Primitive Methodist Chapel was erected in 1850.
The Armstrong family have been very much synonymous with Witton le Wear Methodist Chapel.
