Non-conformist chapel and attached cottage, under conversion to single dwelling at time of survey. 1759 with early C19 additions and C20 alterations.

Former chapel on left has 6-panel door beneath segmental brick arch with keystone; small casement window over. To left of door are 2 large, round-headed windows with projecting stone sills, C20 casements and brick arches with keystones. To right of door is a casement under segmental arch with keystone and a blocked doorway (now window) with similar head; C20 3-light casement window over. Early C19 cottage set slightly back on right has chequered brickwork with pale headers and has two C20 casements with glazing bars to ground floor and single window above. The range of buildings has boxed eaves and brick end stacks. Rear: much altered; remains of 2 segmental arches in rear wall of chapel. Interior: altered; floor inserted in chapel over which are 2 original King-post trusses, one now with tie-beam cut through. Built by followers of John Johnson (Baptist Minister in Liverpool 1741-7); in late C19 became a preaching station of Higher Lane Chapel, Lymm; used from 1924 as house and workshop. Listed primarily for its historical importance in the development of non-conformist worship in this area.
