Details

1. 5111 TOWN GATE Idle BD10 Idle YMCA Youth and Community Centre (formerly listed as Sunday School) SE 1737 19/76 4.9.52 II*

2. Built as a chapel of ease in 1630 but not consecrated until 1692 and prior to this date used by non-conformist congregations as well, an unusual case. On an island site the chapel is erected on a plain rectangular plan, built of coursed gritstone with plinth and flush quoins. Stone slate roof, coped gable ends with shaped kneelers surmounted by small ball finials. Small square stone bellcot to north-west gable with corbel support, blind arched panels to sides, small crow wing finial. The side windows of the chapel have a domestic character with chamfered mullioned-transomed round-headed lights. The south-east gable has a large window with simple Perpendicular tracery formed by diminishing rows of round-headed lights, a pattern very similar to the Old Bell Chapel at Thornton and Holy Trinity, Low Moor. On east side is a moulted jamb doorway with ogee shaped head dated 1630. The interior has been modernised.
