An early Wesleyan Society was formed in the area and had 12 members by 1797. By 1817, a "room over a workshop at Scarr Hall" became their chapel and was known as "The Long Baulk" due to it's beamed roof.
Erected 1839 with support from the Centenary Fund, the congregation began worshipping in the chapel during construction "before the roofing was finished". The chapel was enlarged in 1865.
The larger building which stands to the left of the chapel was the Sunday school.
