Originally built in 1819 as the first Wesleyan Chapel in Meltham, it later became a Sunday School and Assembly Rooms after a new chapel was built on an adjoining site in the mid-1880s.[1]

The Sunday School alterations were completed in April 1891 and were described by the Huddersfield Daily Examiner (17/Apr/1891):

The lower part [of the old chapel] has been made into nice class rooms, while the second floor forms one large room, well adapted for lectures and entertainments.
