A Methodist Society was formed in the village in 1803.

Richard Brampton registered a meeting place for worship in the village on 20 April 1805

In 1808 the first Wesleyan Methodist Chapel was built.

A new Chapel opened in 1907

In the mid 1990’s most of the building was converted into 5 apartments. The Sunday school rooms were retained as a chapel which is still in use today (2012).
