They can all still clearly be seen from the Google Maps view.
John Wesley, one of the founders of Methodism, preached around Osmotherley many times from 1745 onwards.
A methodist society formed in 1750 and the chapel was built in 1754, making it one of the earliest in the country.
BY 1865 a larger chapel was needed and the original fell out of use, however it was restored in 1970 and the larger chapel became a private house.
The chapel is still in use today and carries the date 1754 over the door.
Fragment of the original medieval cross, which is said to have been over 8m tall, can be found in the Crypt at Lastingham
