AdminHistoryThe society was in existence in 1795. Occasional services were held in a cottage called Water House in Church Street by Edward Brooke of Honley (known as 'Squire Brooke') a local preacher in the Huddersfield area from 1825 until his death in 1871. Water House was last used for services in 1873 and a new chapel was built on the north side of Church Street to the east of the railway bridge in 1872-1873. A Sunday School was built behind the chapel in 1890-1891. When part of the chapel ceiling collapsed in 1913, the chapel was rebuilt on the same site between 1914-1915. In 1968 the congregation joined with Paddock Congregational Church to form a United Church using the Methodist Church's premises.
