Former United Methodist Chapel. Opened in 1838. Unplastered cob walls on a slate rubble plinth. Above the plinth on the west front and south side the cob walls are hung with large rag slates. Low-pitched asbestos slate hipped roof with red clay ridge tiles. Plan: A small rectangular plan, single-cell chapel with its entrance on the shorter west end and rostrum at the opposite east end. Exterior: Single storey. Blind west front with a central doorway with a C20 plank door and a small circa late C19 gabled open-fronted shallow red brick porch. The tympanum of the porch gable is faced with a large piece of slate and has shaped barge-boards; inside the porch on the left hand side a simple wooden notice board. The right hand south side of the chapel has 2 large circa late C19 sash windows with margin panes and slate cills. The left hand north side has 2 large original 24-pane sashes, also with slate cills. The east end in blind. Including forecourt walls at the west end, probably later C19, slate rubble with slate rubble saddle-back capping; the forecourt is tapered towards the outer end where there is a gateway with 2 small granite monolithic gate-posts with pyramidal tops; the gate is missing. A nicely cobbled path leads from the gateway to the chapel entrance. Interior: Simple interior without a gallery. Plain plastered walls and a flat ceiling from which are suspended 6 gas lights. The original box-pews survive and have panelled fronts, shaped ends and leader's pew in front. The later C19 rostrum at the east end has chamfered balusters. Source: Stell, C.
