Top Chapel
Top Chapel
Top Chapel was Tyldesley's first place of worship. It was built in the Market Square in 1789 for the Countess of Huntingdon's sect which had broken away from the Church of England (LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) ). It became known as the Top Chapel due to its geographical location. Later another smaller chapel was built at the bottom of the hill and became known as the Bottom Chapel; this chapel no longer exists.

The Chapel, a grade II listed building (LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) Images of England), became a Pentecostal Chapel in 1970 after being in decline for a number of years and is now The Community Life Church, affiliated to Elim Pentecostal Churches independent (LinkExternal link ).
