History: Calvinistic Methodist chapel built 1832 and remodelled with added chapel house in 1883.
Exterior: Colourwashed stucco with close-eaved slate roof. Lateral facade with raised plinth and angle quoins. Two long arched centre windows and two equally long but slightly narrower arched outer gallery lights. Before 1883 further out were two arched doorways, but in 1883 the left door was blocked. The right door is in slightly raised gabled surround with fretted bargeboards and pendant over raised stucco arch with keystone. Many-panelled door and traceried fanlight. Chapel windows have similar stucco heads and keystones. Attractive glazing pattern with narrow marginal panes. Centre oval slate plaque in stucco surround. Rubble stone S wall, brackets to gable, whitewashed rear wall with three long arched windows, brick arched heads.
Ty Capel: Roof-line slightly lower than chapel, and stone and yellow brick N stack, slightly on front roof slope. Roughcast with stucco plinth and angle strip. Three-storey, one-window range of sashes with marginal glazing bars, the upper sash breaking into a gable. Door to extreme against chapel corner.
Interior: Re-ordered in 1883 to face S end wall. Entry via lobby with multi-paned coloured-glass window, under gallery. 3-bay gallery across N wall is slightly canted back. Bays are divided by panelled pilasters. Each bay has brackets under fretted cornice, then long low panels of turned balusters, then long horizontal panels, then long low panels of squat turned balusters under fretted top cornice. Raised centre roundel with clock. Balustraded curved great seat and pulpit with three-sided panelled front. Stucco Corinthian pilasters behind with moulded arch. Plaster ceiling with centre rose.
A well-preserved small chapel of the 1830s with unusually attractive glazing and interior woodwork of 1883. Exceptional rural setting close to Pont Pennant.
