The chapel in the photograph was opened in 1909 to replace the first chapel, near the town centre – that is now in residential use and you can read about it here. Skipton Road chapel closed in 1979 and is now used by the Settle Christian Fellowship which is a Pentecostal church.

Colin Dews adds that the architect was John Wills of Derby and London.
