The Independents have a chapel at Middleton, erected by Captain Scott, during the time he resided at Matlock Bath. (1) There is an Independent Methodist Chapel and associated burial ground (see SMR 33009) situated here on the 1st edition OS map.

It was established by Captain Scott, evangelist, under the auspices of Lady Glenorchy, then a visitor to Matlock Bath. The black oak pulpit was formerly in the chapel of the celebrated Dr Doddridge, at Northampton. (3) By the 3rd edition OS map there is an attached Sunday School.
