The chapel erected in 1870 to the plans of architect Joseph Wright at a cost of approximately £800 replaced a chapel that was built in 1819. It had the distinction of being the first chapel built north of the Humber opening on 26th July 1819. North Cave also became the head of the North Cave Circuit.

By 2009 the chapel appeared to have closed for worship. In February 2013 bids were invited for the purchase of the building. It was sold to be converted into three apartments.

The fourth photo is of the plaque from the 1819 North Cave chapel. It is now in the Englesea Brook Museum collection.

Photos taken August 2009 and 2013.

  • I was born in North Cave and christened at the chapel in Chuch Street. When the chapels merged we carried the baptism roll over to the Chapel in Westgate. They were on the wall in the Sunday school room.
    I was married at the Chapel in August 1974.
    I didn’t know until recently that the Chapel had been made into homes.
    I would be interested to know if the baptism rolls had been saved and if so would it be able to get a photo of them.
    Kind Regards
    R. Wall.
