c1825; former independent congregationalist chapel with attached minister's house.


Square rubble-built chapel with half-hipped slate roof. The NW (entrance) side has arched outer entrances with recessed boarded doors and segmental fanlights; these flank a pair of tall arched windows with multi-pane sashes and marginal glazing. The rear face (SE) has three tall, square-headed, 12-pane recessed sashes, again with marginal glazing; that to the L has only the upper half visible, the lower being obscured by a glazed single-storey lean-to extension. Part-rendered SW upper wall with weathercoursing where the chapel adjoins the manse.


This was not available for inspection at the time of survey (10/96).
