II

Also known as The Dead House. Small cottage with outbuilding, altered for use as Methodist chapel. Late C18 or early C19. Large squared coursed block, felted roofs. Two small gabled buildings in parallel, enclosed in stone boundary wall, set to slope to W of Chiswell, behind No 57 (not included). Main building, to N, has door flanked by openings each side with remains of casements on S front, into courtyard, and a square opening in gable to W, beneath small stone stack. Raised verges. Roof covering has been removed, temporary felting remains. Interior mainly gutted. Subsidiary Features: To the S across a small yard, a smaller building, set into beach slope to W, has 3 openings at first floor above door and 2 openings at ground floor. Large loading opening with pair of plank doors at first-floor level to W;, raised verges. This building is in rubble, with lower roof pitch than main chapel. A stone retaining wall runs c 2m W from the W gable of the chapel, returns to gable of the second building, all in good squared Portland block. These buildings are of historical interest, although apparently abandoned and deteriorating at time of survey (May 1991). The name derives from a sect of Methodists so named for their procedure in meetings.
