Burnsall Methodist Chapel MYD34484 (c) YDNPA, 2023

Burnsall Methodist chapel dominates the main road through the village and was once a thriving place of worship. It replaced an earlier chapel built nearby in 1840. The new chapel was designed by Skipton-based architect James Hartley and opened in 1902. It was built of coursed squared stone from Bingley with Guiseley stone dressings. Maintenance costs and a falling congregation meant that the chapel eventually had to close.
