First Tingley Methodist Chapel, Front (West Ardsley)
Colour imageJanuary 1966. Image shows the first Methodist Chapel to be built in Tingley. It was erected in 1780 at the instigation of Nathaniel Harrison who had been converted to Methodism after listening to the preaching of John Nelson at Birstall. The following quote concerns this small chapel, 'It has been the birthplace of many souls and an unspeakable blessing to hundreds. The society has always been considered a lively, zealous people, but generally poor'. Although enlarged at either end, the chapel was eventually unable to accommodate the increasing numbers attending services. In 1837 it was decided to build a new, larger chapel which opened on Shrove Tuesday, 6th March 1838. Image used courtesy of Peter Aldred. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

First Tingley Methodist Chapel, side view (Tingley)
Colour imageJanuary 1966. Side view of the first Tingley Methodist Chapel, built in stone in 1780. Nathaniel Harrison had been converted to Methodism through listening to John Nelson when he preached at Birstall. Because of this he was instrumental in building the Methodist Chapel here. The rising number of people attending the services necessitated the enlargement of both ends of the chapel, but this proved inadequate also, and a new chapel was built in 1838.
