A small chapel which appears to date from about 1830 which has an attached stable. The chapel has been little altered externally. Internally it appears to have some original fittings, but probably moved about, as the disused gable fireplace suggests. The chapel is recorded as having been founded by William Jones in 1816, but this building does look a bit later than that date.


Painted rubble with a Welsh slate roof. Single cell plan with attached lean-to stable to left and a modern timber porch. Gable end to road with entrance door inside porch. Above this is an 8 pane ogee headed window with dressed surround standing proud. The left long wall is mostly covered by the stable which has a plain plank door under a timber lintel. The right long wall has two segmental headed windows, 8 8 pane casements, 2 panes only to the left side of the second one. These windows may be an alteration from when the chapel was reoriented internally. The rear gable has a central truncated stack flanked by 6 over 6 sashes with horns. The chapel is set in a small graveyard with a number of well cut headstones.

Reasons for Listing

Included as an example of a modest and little changed mid C19 rural chapel which retains the attached stable for the horse of the itinerant minister.
