Primitive Methodist illustration. This drawing appeared in The Sound Projector music magazine issue 10 way back in 2002. The North East has many 'Primitive Methodist' chapel buildings in its landscape, most now closed or converted into houses. I was interested to read that the Primitives were also known as 'ranters' or 'shouters' because of their noisy and often open-air hymn singing. The Primitive chapel goers were also known for acceptance of women preachers, teetotalism and a form of Christianity attuned to the needs of labouring people.
