2. The Chapel was completed in 1755. It is a simple 2 storey rectangular structure with rendered sandstone front. Two tall round headed windows to centre and similar but shorter windows at first floor level above flanking round header doorways. All have small impost blocks and keystones to arches. Stone slate roof with corbel brackets to eaves, saddlestones and prominent shaped kneelers. Louvred stone bellcot on ridge with pyramid roof and ball finial. The minister's house was added, in part under the same roof, circa 1782-1800. The sandstone "brickwork" remains exposed with flush quoins. Three ashlar framed sash windows and squared jamb doorway with cornice; one bay with C19 extension to west. The rear elevation of the Chapel has similar fenestration to the front with addition of central, 2 storey, sandstone "brick" projecting bay built to contain organ loft with round headed window facing north. The minister's house, on this side, has 2 light square mullion windows. The interior of the Chapel retains panelled galleries on both sides supported on wooden Doric columns. The pews are late C19. Early to mid C19 organ case with iron finials recessed in segmental niche with Doric entablature impost mouldings and anthemion patterned keystone. Late C18 pulpit panelled and swept in to base. John Wesley preached here in 1759.
