The laying of the foundation stone of the chapel is recorded in the Primitive Methodist magazine in a report by George Stacey.

"Huxley in the Chester Circuit was first visited by our preachers in 1819, and for forty-one years a congregation and society have been heartily welcomed, and uninterruptedly accommodated at the house of Mr. John Sadler, farmer. A plot of ground, of sufficient dimensions for a graveyard and chapel, has been secured to the Connexion, and the foundation stone of a Jubilee Chapel was laid July 5th, 1860, by I. F. Maddock, Esq., of Chester, who delivered an appropriate address ; after which the Rev. W.Rowe preached an impressive sermon to a large and attentive congregation, 270 of whom adjourned to a commodious tent, partook of an excellent tea, and liberally patronised the object contemplated."
