This chapel in the historic village of Mow Cop was built in 1860 and enlarged in 1882. It replaced the earlier one of 1841 – you can read more about the 1841 chapel on this page.

In 1902 the plaque from the original chapel was placed in the wall of the present day building which in 2015 is still open for worship
