Methodist Chapel on Normanby Road, Owmby by Spital, was built in 1903 and in
use as a doctor’s surgery when this photograph was taken.

The last service here was held in May 1971.
The chapel has recently been on sale again.
View of the chapel from the north-west.
Entrance to the church is through the unbuttressed Norman tower with Early English work higher up.
Roofing materials: nave - pantile; chancel - slate; north aisle - lead.
This view of SS Peter and Paul from the south-east shows the unfortunate mixture of roof materials and the stark cement rendering on the vestry.
SS Peter & Paul has a 3-bay Norman north arcade dating from c 1200.
The chancel was rebuilt in 1808 but reuses a late 13th century east window with geometrical tracery.
In contrast the east window of the north aisle has intersecting tracery.
The 3-bay north arcade of c.1200 has round piers, with square abaci and crude stiff leaf decoration.
Font "is made from reused sections of a massive drum pillar, quite out of scale with anything which survives, and of uncertain date.
The topmost section is probably a reused and inverted capital of which one plain volute survives"
