This building appears as a Wesleyan Methodist Church on the 1st edition OS map. (1)
The original Chapel was opened in October 1813. In 1832 an associated Sunday School was built (see SMR 33308). It was later rebuilt in 1865 and again in 1885. The pulpit in this Chapel was said to have come from New Mills, where it was removed in 1809, given to the Whitfield Society in 1813, and then moved to this chapel when it was opened. In 1885, the old Chapel was demolished and the foundation stone for the new Chapel was laid in June the same year. The source is a bit unclear, bit it appears that the Chapel continued in use until 1931, at which time the Sunday School (SMR 33308) was enlarged to incorporate the Chapel congregation. (2)
