Remains of dismantled bell-cote over east end of nave. Shallow buttresses with multiple off-sets. Stone plinth-course and string-course at base of windows. Two-light east window and three-light west windows have Geometric Decorated tracery; windows to north and south are small cusped lancets.

REASONS FOR DESIGNATION: The Nonconformist chapel at Fairmile Cemetery, built in 1868, is listed for the following principal reasons:
* Architectural interest: the building is handsomely built, well detailed and comparatively unaltered.
* Group value: it forms a pair with the neighbouring Anglican chapel, and the two form the centrepiece to an intact Victorian cemetery landscape.
