Scargill Chapel is one of the few 20th century buildings within the National Park to have been listed. It was built in 1958-61 as the chapel for a religious holiday and conference centre. The architect was George G Pace, one of the leading ecclesiastical architects of his day. The unusual steeply pitched roof is visible from the other side of the Dale and the building uses local materials ‘to appear to grow out of the dale’ as Pace intended.
