Early meetings of the Westhouses Primitive Methodist society were held in the waiting room at Westhouses Railway Station. They held fund raising events and decided to build further down Alfreton Road.  It was opened in 1897 and cost £700.

The 1897 Primitive Methodist magazine announced that “At Westhouses, a railway centre, 800 square yards of land have been purchased in the main road, and a chapel is to be erected to seat 250 people at a cost of £650.”

The chapel is still in use in 2015.

There is further information about the chapel on the Abbott Damp Proofing website.
