Link to Archaeology Data Service:


The first place of worship to be built in Hebden in Wharfedale was the Methodist Chapel, and this wasnít until 1812. In 1838 a large proportion of the congregation broke away and built a Primitive Methodist chapel nearby. This and the growing village population finally spurred the Church of England on to build its own church in the village. St Peterís chapel of ease was built to the designs of its curate, the Rev John Feron, and is in the Gothic revival style. It was consecrated in October 1841.
