Treligga became a regular preaching place in 1816 and in 1829 Nathaniel Northey
joined T. P. Rosevear and others in formations of trust to erect chapel on land
obtained by G. Martyn of Helland. In 1835 a bitter dispute between the reformers and
Wesleyans led to the trustees of Treligga obtaining a legal injunction preventing the
Wesleyan superintendent from entering the chapel. The trustees copy is held in the
offices of Connexional Chapel Department, Manchester.
