Widdale, North Yorkshire, the former Methodist Chapel. The date-stone shows 1856, which date is confirmed as building rather than enlargement by the fact that the 1856 O.S. map doesn't show a building on the site. The history recounted by various websites show that it was for many years a school (since before the 1913-16 O.S. map, anyway), and continued as such until it was closed, in the very early 1930's. The O.S. map of 1979 marks it as Chapel. The church only rented a room, never owning it outright. It continued as a place of worship until 1994, at which time the building was auctioned off. Various attempts have been made since to convert it to residential use, but even as late as 2016 conversion work remains unfinished. Two additional views - 1, 2. SD 827 878.
