Methodism in Bitterne began in 1806 with the formation of a congregation that met at the home of John Sinnatt in Pound Lane (later Street). The first chapel was built in Chapel Street, later Dean Road, in 1823. A larger chapel was built at the corner of Bitterne High Street and Pound street in 1906 on the site of the old animal pound, which was moved slightly to the north to make way for the church. This church was closed in 1968 when a new Methodist church was built in White’s Road, and demolished in the 1970s.
