Rectangular plan with presumed gallery at the ritual west end plus slightly later outshut to rear (side).

Doorway to outshut on left. INTERIOR not inspected but unlikely to retain any fittings since its use as an outbuilding. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: slate stone rubble wall with square-on-plan gate-piers with rendered coping. One of the first Bible Christian chapels and of particular interest with its restrained simplicity and vernacular use of materials.
