Erected in the mid C19, probably to the design of Henry Kennedy, and after the completion of the adjacent church in 1848, to provide both for funerary use and to serve as a separate chapel for non-conformist worship.


Green igneous rubble stonework, with rock-faced pale gritstone dressings, and a graded slate roof. A single cell building, with a gabled S porch near the W end. Lancet windows, paired at the W and centre of each side, and paired with a trefoiled roundel at the head at the E end with a pair of slit vents to the roof space. Two single lancets. Bracketed eaves and chamfered plinth. Coped gables; that at the E crowned with a metal cross. Diamond leaded glazing with red-flashed margins.

The access from the road is by a 'kissing gate' in a high half-round boulder wall and square gate piers.


Not accessible at the time of inspection.
