Hillhouse Free Wesleyan Chapel

Huddersfield Hillhouse United Methodist Free Chapel, known locally as the Teapot Chapel, stands at the corner of Halifax Old Road and King Cliff Road, Hillhouse, Birkby.

It was built in 1873-74 at a cost of £3000 by a breakaway group from the Brunswick Chapel in Huddersfield and opened on 17 September 1874.  Seating capacity was approximately 500 people, with a Sunday school in the basement to hold 350 children.

The Chapel closed in 1962 and reopened in 1967 as the Parish Centre for St John’s Church, Birkby.  The building was bought by local Sunni Muslims in 1976 and converted into a mosque and Islamic Centre.
