"The first chapel was built in 1823 or 1833, and the foundation stone for the "Jubilee" chapel, probably on the same site in the High Street, was laid on the 6.9.1868.

This second chapel opened in April 1869.

The interior was altered in 1961 and now incorperates fittings from Scunthorpe Trinity chapel.

The schoolrooms were opened on the 10.6.1961 and the chapel is still in use with a membership of 41"

St Andrew’s, Burton-upon-Stather, has a fine Norman north arcade.

Much of the rest of the church is from the Early English period though much restored by Edward Browning in 1865. This includes the nave windows with their flowing tracery in Decorated style.

There are monuments inside to the Sheffields of Normanby.
