Keith Guyler's notes accompanying his photograph say that the chapel shown  was opened in 1873 but that it was the second Lofthouse Gate Primitive Methodist chapel.  The previous one may have been dated 1837.

It was rebuilt in 1929 to accommodate 140 and at the time of the photograph in 1999 was a Health Club - Healthilife.    It is not visible from the road in Google Street View in 2008.
