Sadly, there are no surviving records for this chapel – known as Bethany – which opened on 27 August 1865, on Durham Road, Low Fell.

The Methodist New Connexion Northern Association Minutes mention that the Society commenced around 1842 with 8 members. It is believed that the chapel closed around 1880 when the Low Fell Wesleyan chapel opened.
