Puritan Chapel

The Puritan Chapel is a superb Grade 1 listed building dating back to 1649. Have a look at the Bramhope Puritan Chapel for more details and how you can become a ‘Friend of the Chapel’ and help contribute to the Chapel’s upkeep and be informed of any special events.

Please be advised that parking at the Britannia Hotel is only free for 20 minutes, then a charge of £5 per day applies. Free parking is available in the village car park on Old Lane. 

Repointing works to the Puritan chapel

Following a structural report on the Puritan Chapel and a recommendation to removed the existing cement pointing and replace with a traditional lime  mortar mix in order to preserve the stone of the chapel, the Parish Council arranged for the works to be undertaken on the chapel.

The works have recently been completed and will help to preserve this historic Grade 1 listed building for the enjoyment of future generations.

Thanks go to Leeds City Council and our Ward Councillors, Cllr Billy Flynn, Cllr Barry Anderson and Cllr Caroline Anderson who have match funded 50% of the cost of the works via a grant from the Outer North West Committee, with the Parish Council using some of its capital reserve funds and CIL monies for the remainder of the cost.

The Chapel is normally open to the public on the following Sunday afternoons once a month between June and September between 2pm and 4pm. However due to the Coronavirus chapel openings are on hold for this year. It is hoped that we may be able to open in September to  coincide with Leeds Heritage Open Days. Dates to be confirmed.

We look forward to welcoming visitors and sharing some of the history of the chapel with you.

It is also possible to hire the Chapel for Blessings, Christenings and Funerals – please contact the Clerk to the Parish Council for further details.
