The chapel, on the right, was built in 1847, the land and building materials were donated by Matthew Mitchell. The chapel closed in 1925, there being little enthusiasm for this type of worship in Esholt. Bradford Corporation bought the building for £150 in 1929 and it was later demolished.

Waterloo Mill – c1907

This mill belonged to the Esholt Estate; on old maps it is shown as a scribbling mill. Scribbling was the preparation of raw fleece for spinning by a basic form of carding i.e., the separation of wool fibres. This was a process traditionally done by children using a handheld device when cloth manufacture had been carried out at home. Around the 1780s machines were being used in mills for the process.
