Site Description A Sunday School was first erected on this site in 1814, but a chapel was not added until after 1913. The later chapel is constructed in the Gothic style with a gable-entry type plan. The facade is dominated by a large perpendiular window with stone tracery and the outer bays are slightly recessed, with cusp-headed windows. In 2003 this chapel was recorded as disused.
