The History of Lockwood and North Crosland (1980) by Brian Clarke:

Meetings of Methodists in Taylor Hill can be traced back to 1819 when travelling preachers regularly attended a cottage in the area for prayer meetings. However, it was not until 1869 that a Chapel and Sunday School were erected, becoming the only Primitive Methodist Church in our area. Closed on 22nd October 1972, the building is in 1976 in use as a Nursery Playgroup Centre.
