Formed in 1864 by 36 Baptists who had previously worshiped at Salendine Nook, they initially met at a premises in Quarmby. The foundation stone of their new chapel was laid on by Mr. George Walker in May 1867, with the Rev. Samuel C. Burn of Cardiff invited to become the first Pastor. In April 1989, the congregation united with Milnsbridge to form the West Huddersfield Baptist Church.[1]
