The opening of Humbleton Primitive Methodist chapel is descriobed by R Langham in the Primitive Methodist magazine. The society had previous met in Robert Key's cottage but Alfred Smith, Esq., of Humbleton gave the land for a chapel. The society raised £50 of the £120 cost of the chapel which measured 25' x 18'.

The foundation-stone was laid on August 23rd 1860 by Mrs. S. Twilton, an aged member of the society. The opening services took place from November 4th 1860. Preachers included Revs. T. Bennett, of Bridlington, T. Bennett and J. Wilson, with Messrs. P. Jackson, W.Camplin, and Mr. Gray, of Sproutley.

The chapel was still in use in 1980 but was sold in November 2005. You could have bought it for £110,000 as a place to live in in 2016.
