A Methodist chapel was built on this site in the early part of the 19th century. Named after a former street, it was said to have been the largest Methodist chapel in existence. By the 1970s, however, Brunswick Street and Place had disappeared under the A64 roadway, and the chapel was closed to worship and left empty. Eventually, the vandalized chapel was demolished to make way for the construction of a multi-story building in the 1980s. The original metal fence that surrounded the chapelyard was retained. A war memorial honouring 29 men from the Brunswick chapel also still stands in front of the office building. The rest of the chapelyard was bricked or grassed over. A burial register dating 1815 to 1877 survives.
