Where is this? I know of the Inghamite Chapel on Wheatley Lane and then there is another Chapel closer to Fence on the same side of the road, is that the Wesleyan Chapel?

Are Methodists the same as Wesleyan's? There is a Methodist Chapel and School in Wheatley Lane, would they call it 'Wesleyan' if it was Methodist?? Here is a link:

Didn't there used to be, maybe still is, a church and adjoining school on Wheatley Lane at the Barrowford end, on the right just before Barrowford?

Genuki shows two chapels, Wesleyan Methodists were different to Inghamite Methodists and Methodism was very big in the North.

This is from the Wikipedia - but is fairly ok information. I think that Wheatley Lane is the last Inghamite chapel left.

Benjamin Ingham (1712-72) founder of the Inghamite Methodists was born in Ossett. He was educated at Batley Grammar School and Queen's College, Oxford. He was ordained in 1735 and accompanied John and Charles Wesley as a missionary to the colony of Georgia in the USA. In 1737, after his return to Ossett, Ingham started to establish the Inghamite Methodists after being banned in 1739 from preaching in churches. By 1755 there were over eighty Inghamite congregations, mainly in Yorkshire and Lancashire. A vestige of Ingham's Church still survives in the Lancashire/Yorkshire border area.

It is Julie - but I'm still curious about the Wesleyan one. It must be the Methodist I would think. That has a school close to it doesn't it?

I'll maybe have a look when I go up next week.
