Third-quarter C19 Methodist chapel with attached minister's house, designed as a unit.
Rubble construction with continuous old slate roof. 2 storey house section with squat end chimneys, that to the R (between the house and chapel) of rendered brick and with weather-coursing. Central entrance to SE side; recessed modern door. Flanking 4-pane casement windows and further windows under the eaves, that to the L modern. The L gable, facing the inclined lane, has a further door to the L with, to the R, 2 windows to the ground floor and a modern window to the first floor.
The continuous chapel section has a tall recessed and boarded door to the L with plain light above. To the R two tall 8-pane sash windows with 2 similar windows to the R gable; this with deep verges and plain bargeboards.
The interiors were not accessible at the time of inspection.
Included as an interesting and relatively complete example of a C19 Methodist house-and-chapel unit, in interesting juxtaposition with St. Machreth's church and churchyard immediately opposite.
Group value with the associated stable block and graveyard.
