Lindwell Methodist Church was of the Primitive Methodist tradition and was established in 1821 by missionaries who came over the hills from Barnsley and preached at the well.

A church was built by subscription in 1836 and opened 1837. It accommodated around 180 worshippers.

It was extended in 1897.

There was a day school here.

Each Saturday evening the school desks were moved into a nearby barn so that services could be held in the Chapel. The scholars replaced the desks on Monday morning.

The building stands on the skyline of Lindwell.

In 2002, the church merged with Greetland Methodist Church to become Greetland & Lindwell Methodist Church.
