Mount Zion, near Ogden Water, is open as a chapel and heritage centre, with a lovely collection of ceramics, and can be booked for weddings.
Hope Baptist Church, Hebden Bridge, is still in use as a chapel, and is used by many community groups. The public library next door was the Sunday School.

Wainsgate, opened in 1859 making it one of the oldest Baptist chapels above Hebden Bridge. It is now cared for by a trust and is open for regular heritage days and concerts.
