Station Road was built in 1903 to replace the chapel in Dandy Hill which had served since 1832. The Dandy Hill chapel was used as a Sunday School until 1963 when, following the opening of a new Sunday School adjacent to Station Road Church, it was demolished and the site built upon. The Station Road church is still in use.

Thanks to Philip Thornborrow for providing the scanned image from The Building News vol. 86, Jan.-June 1904, p446 of the architect’s drawing.
The Building News described the chapel: “The building seats 400 persons, and has been erected at a cost of £2,000. Local stone, with limestone dressings, has been used. All interior fittings and roofing are of pitch-pine. The contractors were Messrs. Moore and McAid, of Port St. Mary, and the architect Mr. W. Clement Williams, F.R.I.B.A., Halifax, Yorks.”
