History

The original chapel building was constructed in 1780, with re-building and alterations carried out in 1818 and 1872, commemorated by the inscription on a slate plaque set above the entrance.

Exterior

A single storey, gable entry, Calvinistic Methodist chapel. Walls built with rubble, rendered, with rendered dressings; front angles with stressed quoins. Modern slate roof. Gable entrance front is symmetrically planned; a central round-arched entrance with square-headed doorway under a radial bar fanlight and flanking, tall, round-arched, slightly recessed windows; openings with moulded hoodmoulds on shaped brackets. Similarly detailed windows to each of the 3 side bays and 2 windows to rear, without hoodmoulds; side windows with slightly stressed keystones.

Interior

Entrance leads into small rectangular vestibule with side entrances leading into main body of chapel. Set fawr at entrance end, raised by one step, sub-rectangular with opposing side entrances. Recessed panelling to lower part with turned balusters under a moulded rail above; turned newel posts at entrances. Pulpit is rectangular, raised by 3 steps, similarly detailed to set fawr with advanced central canted bay of recessed panelling. All fittings are of pitch pine, including 3 ranks of raking box pews. Walls are plastered, painted, with the arched window surrounds painted in a darker colour. This is mirrored in the panel behind the pulpit, the arch following the line of the ceiling of the vestibule, forming a central arch with moulded cornice. Ceiling plastered with moulded cornice; each bay with relief moulding of radiating acanthus leaf to each light fitting, similarly detailed central ventilation grilled with moulded, decorative surround.
