Carlin How Chapel

Carlin How Chapel

Primitive Methodist Chapel, Carlin How, built in 1874. The path at the left of the chapel leading down to Skinningrove Beck was part of the old ”Back” or ”Cleveland Street”, which ran to Guisborough. The steam from the mine chimney can be seen in the valley below the chapel.

Jule Howard tells us: ”The name of the chapel was Zion Methodist Chapel. In the 1950′s and 1960′s below this building a youth club was held, and we played billiards, table tennis and other games.” Whilst Derick Pearson tells us: ” I enjoyed going there to play billiards. There was a little awkward door on the side of the lower floor part way down ”pit bank” (as it was called) into the youth club.” Jan Snaith tells us: ”Carlin How Methodist Youth Club – Where we forged lifelong friendships and learnt to play Table Tennis –  many of us now playing again in local groups as it has gained popularity once more.”
