Scalby – The Wesleyans have a Chapel here built in 1873.  The Primitive Methodists meet in the Temperance Hall.  Reference: Bulmer’s 1890 Directory

The Temperance Hall is the ‘Hall’ marked on the 1926 revision of the Ordnance Survey map at the cross roads of High Street and North and South Streets.

The Primitive Methodist Chapel was built in Scalby in 1895.  Reference: British History Online – Parish of Scalby

Scalby Primitive Methodist Chapel South Street was in the Scarborough Jubilee Circuit.   It was brick built, seating 150 on pews with 1 School Hall and 1 other room.   Reference: 1940s Methodist Statistical Returns

It must have closed sometime after this date.   Yorkshire County Archives have records from 1896 to 1952.

Later it was demolished and a bungalow was built on the site.

In 2023 the former Wesleyan chapel is still an active Methodist church and the Temperance Hall still exists.
