In 1833, the Independent Chapel at Mellor Brook (Mellor Brook being the main village within the parish of Balderstone),ceased as a place of worship and was purchased by the Church of England and subsequently licensed as a place of worship. Now called St Saviour, this chapel became the centre of worship for the parish until St Leonard at Balderstone was re-built in 1854. Religious services were carried out here until 1859 and at irregular periods for another 10 years after that. In 1869 it became the first village school.
