Bethel United Methodist Chapel, Commercial Street (Morley)
Colour imageOctober 1965. View shows both buildings of the Bethel United Methodist Chapel on Commercial Street. The building nearer to Peel Street dates from 1858 and became the Sunday School and social activities building after the completion of the much larger chapel to its left in 1896. The second building was completed at a time when many Methodist chapels in Morley were extending their seating capacity, eg. Ebenezer and Banks Hill, and were both designed by the same architect, Mr. T. A. Buttery. Not long after this picture was taken the Bethel Chapel closed and the congregation joined up with the Central Methodist Chapel on Wesley Street. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
