8/5 Gospel Hall, including - Graveyard Walls, Gatepiers and Gates

- II

Small chapel, probably C19, stone rubble heavily mortared except on south side which is roughcast rendered. Slate roof with plain bargeboards at each gable end (Ritual west end) Tall single storey with lower C20 rubble extension and lean-to at left gable end. Pair of tilting casements, 8/12 panes on each side with slate sills and thin lintels, inserted in former pointed arched openings. Small square window, 2/2 panes set high at ritual east end with slate sills and lintel. Pointed arch doorway in extension on north side wall with plank door. Chapel and small graveyard surrounded on three sides by rubble wall with rounded stone capping, low to left hand end, north and part of farside, high at right hand end. Gate piers built up for nearside entrance with wrought iron gate with pointed bars and dogbars and small wrought iron gate at nearside left corner with central spear-headed bar.

Plain interior with the pews facing west, suggesting the orientation of the chapel may have been reversed with the addition of the extension.
