Central Methodist Church on Commercial Street was formerly Zion Chapel, and was colloquially known as The Shoddy Temple. See here for an explanation about shoddy; mill owners would strike deals on the steps of the church on Sundays. © David Regan (2011). Link.

Wesleyan Methodist Chapel at Batley Carr. David suspects that this is the demolished Mackenzie Memorial Methodist Church - can you confirm? If it is, then it was built 1837-8, and demolished in 2008. From an old postcard in David Regan's Collection.
