at the beginning of the C19 and replaced by another house which was burnt
down in 1967. The Chapel, which is C14 in origin, has a waggon roof,
panelled ceiling and a carved cornice. It is now incorporated into the
new house built on the site. The exterior much altered, is gabled on
the street front, faced in cement colour-washed. There is 1 tall mullioned
and transomed lattice leaded window with red brick dressings and a hood
mould. Roof tiled.
