Patron, the Rev. Jonathan Akroyd.
Built by the present incumbent, Jonathan Akroyd, of Lane Head, in Ovendon, in the said parish, from his own funds, and assistance by his friends in consequence of some extra cost, in the year 1826, and was opened for divine service, under a license granted by the Archbishop of York, on the 31st December in the same year.
It has lately undergone some repairs, and received additional accommodation of sittings, by the erection of a large gallery, into which an organ is to be introduced, at the expense of the said incumbent, who proposes to give to the poor of the townships of Halifax and Skircoat 150 free seats, for ever, out of a total of about 800 sittings.
No district has yet been appointed to it, but the incumbent attends the visitations, chooses his own officers, who are regularly sworn in, has funerals and christenings, and is regularly licensed to perform the same, but the Chapel is not yet consecrated.
There is no glebe house.
