Full description

Single storey, flint façade with brick string course, eaves and round-headed doorway. The chapel was disused when the new chapel was built in Chapel Street. It must be nineteenth century but is very unusual in its mixed Tudor-Gothic-Norman style. Evidence of it having been used as a house is shown by intrusive sash windows.
