Bugby's Chapel was founded ca. 1779 when William Bugby bought a small plot of land behind the then London Road. The chapel now faces onto Prospect Place.

The chapel was variously known as Bugby Chapel, Bugby's Chapel, East Street Chapel, Little Chapel and the Old Huntingtonian Chapel. It was a Calvinistic chapel.

It seems to have become a Strict Baptist chapel, known as the Salem Chapel, around 1889 and was in use until around 1951. Between 1954 and 1994 the building was used as a Synagogue.

After 1994 the chapel was converted into offices.
