A map of 1902 shows an otherwise unidentified Chap. on Old Road at SK 0821 1608. It's likely to be the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel mentioned on Genuki here. The housing (2023 Streetview) built on its site retains the same footprint.

The Methodist Church on Lichfield Road and The Green. It pre-dates a map of 1902, where it's labelled as Primitive Methodist. SK 0897 1601. Bruce Read. Link.
