Historic Lydgate Chapel

Lydgate Chapel at Newmill is the oldest Unitarian place of worship in our district. It was built, 1684-5, as a place of worship originally for English Presbyterians, who were excluded from the Church of England by the Act of Uniformity of 1662. Lydgate Chapel was opened on March 28, 1695, by the famous Yorkshire Nonconformist divine and diarist, Oliver Heywood, who himself had been excommunicated for not using the Prayer Book.
