The Chapel in Grape Lane, York, was originally built in 1781 for the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion, a small society of evangelical churches founded by Selina, Countess of Huntingdon.
It was sold to the Methodist New Connexion in 1798 and was a Wesleyan Chapel for a short time before it was rented by the Primitive Methodists in 1820. A Sunday School was established there the following year.
The chapel was purchased outright by the Primitive Methodist Church in 1829 and in 1834 it was said to accommodate 684 people. It was part of the single York Circuit of the Primitive Methodist Connexion.
The chapel was closed in 1851 when the congregation transferred to the new Ebenezer Primitive Methodist Chapel in Little Stonegate. The chapel was later converted to commercial use.
