Baptist chapel dated 1841. The adjoining house appears be a later addition. Both house and chapel were disused at time of inspection.


Single-storey chapel in simple Georgian style with 3-bay lateral-entrance facade. Rendered and lined under a slate roof with raised quoins. House adjoining to R under the same roof, rendered and with a rendered end stack. The front of the chapel is symmetrical. Central entrance with round arched head and keystone containing double planked doors and a plain tympanum. Above is a fine square datestone, slightly inset, inscribed 'Ebenezer Baptist Chapel 1841' and with a decorative motif. Tall flanking windows with round arched heads and stone sills containing multi-pane horned sashes. To the rear (visible from the front door) are 2 flat-headed 6-over-6-pane horned sash windows. The adjoining house has a small brick lean-to porch offset to the L, with a planked door into the L side and a multi-pane window to the front. To the R is a 2-light casement window under a segmental head, and a similar window above, rising to the eaves. The NE gable end has no openings, but there is a small stone lean-to with corrugated roof and end stack, possibly a former bakehouse. Doorway to front with segmental head of voussoirs and window with similar head to end.


The interior is partially derelict. Baptistery pool inside front entrance, box pews to L and R, all in poor condition. The chapel had a boarded and panelled ceiling, but the panels are now missing.
