Brinscall Hillside Methodist Wesleyan Methodist Lancashire
Hillside Methodist Church was built in 1899 on the original site of the first Methodist chapel in Brinscall. This arose out of a need for larger premises to accommodate an expanding congregation.
The cost of the building was £3540.3s.7d. This sum was raised by members of the local community, along with large donations from prominent families within the area, notably the Parke family who owned the local cotton mill and who also provided the local swimming pool (still in use and much loved) and a hospital, now converted into housing.
