|||Chapel Houses at the corner with Crossland Road (Churwell)
View of Chapel Houses located at the corner with Crossland Road. The building dates from the early 19th century and was originally Daffil Chapel. Afer 1850 the chapel was vacated when the congregation moved to the Zion Independent Chapel in Morley. The building was converted to three dwellings numbering from left to right, 5, 4 and 3. There is a name plate on the building which reads 'Chapel House'. The houses faced Elland Road but are now demolished.

|||Chapel Houses, the forerunner of the Morley Zion Church, Elland Road (Churwell) (2 comments)
View of Chapel Houses the forerunner of the Morley Zion Church. There was a small graveyard behind the roadside wall. The building was known as Daffil Chapel because of its proximity to Daffil Farm. It was converted into cottages in about the middle of the 19th Century and the congregation removed to more commodious premises in Queen Street, Morley, in 1851. (From a book by Bob Dennis). These houses were demolished in 1976. Research by Ronnie Barraclough. From the David Atkinson Archive, taken by W.J. Monger.
