The laying of the foundation stone at Scholes Primitive Methodist chapel is recorded in the Primitive Methodist magazine of November 1860. The ceremony took place on July 30th 1860.

The land was given by Mr. Hezekiah Haigh, of Scholes. Charles Bhodes, Esq., of Bradford laid the stone. Messrs. Ehodes and Snowdon each baptized a child on the foundation-stone, and the Rev. H.Hatherley prayed. Preachers included Mr. James Blackburn, of Huddersfield, Rev. J. Fearn (Wesleyan).

The celebrations included tea for 134 in the Wesleyan chapel  at Jackson Bridge.

The chapel is still active in 2018.
