The building was probably originally a barn, built in the late C17-early C18, the openings possibly altered at the time the building served as a small methodist chapel, probably under the guidance of Dafydd Ionawr, a preacher of local significance, in the mid C19, who was born and bred at Glan-y-morfa.
Built of locally derived boulders with an admixture of white quartz. Graded slate roof between raised and coped parapets on double-ovolo moulded kneelers. A single storey building of 3 bays with narrow off-centre opposing doors with half-round arched heads of stone. C20 Boarded door and fanlight in the head of the opening. The bay against the road has a similarly contructed window opening, with a C20 glazed window. Ventilation slits at 2 levels, and two in the gable end below a pitching door.
Included as a farm building of early origin, adapted in the C19 with distinctive arched openings.
