Octagonal Methodist Chapel, Heptonstall
Northgate.

Methodist services were originally held in a local farmstead known as the Preaching House, and a Methodist congregation met at Northgate House, Heptonstall.

The Chapel was designed to John Wesley's specifications and consecrated in July 1764. This is possibly the oldest surviving Methodist chapel still in use.

Outlane Wesleyan Chapel
The Chapel was built [1877] to replace an earlier building which had become unsuitable and unable to accommodate the increasing congregation. The design was by Thomas Lister Patchett. It was described as
54 ft by 39 ft. The height from ground floor to ceiling being 29 ft 6 in. Accommodation is provided for 500 workshippers. There will be a gallery round the whole body of the Chapel, supported by octagonal moulded and enriched pillars. Access to the galleries is gained at both ends of the Chapel. The style of architecture is classic, with the front being surmounted by a bold pediment

The estimated cost of £2,200 was raised by subscription.

4 corner-stones were laid on 5th May 1877. A bottle was inserted into a cavity in one of the stones containing Methodist documents, a selection of Tory, Liberal and nonconformist newspapers, and a selection of Halifax newspapers
