Little Trethewey Methodist Chapel, Little Trethewey, St. Levan - Cornwall (UA)

Built as Wesleyan Chapel in 1868. Small chapel with stuccoed Italianate front. Modest and complete interior with closed box pews. The chapel is in a bad condition with holes in the roof. The downpipes are blocked and external render is failing. Front gable is unstable and resulted in damage to the interior. Chapel closed April 2013. The condition continues to deteriorate. Historic England grant-aided repairs in 2015 that covered the roof with a temporary sheet covering. The chapel was then put on the market and there has been no change since.
