The Chapel was built in 1884 with many elements of the Gothic Revival style which was a trend of the 19th century. Its construction was a reflection of the Wesleyan Methodism in the area at the time and played an important role within the community until the 20th century when it finally closed. The Chapel has remained fairly untouched over the centuries, the pews and pulpit were removed at some point in the 1900s and the ground floor used as a school or large teaching room. The scar from where the pulpit once sat can still be seen today, and two original stone fire surrounds still remain. At some point the lower ground floor was also re-configured to form a number of rooms, we presume for accommodation.
The Chapel was sold in the 70s and became a workshop and retail facility, before rising costs meant its demise and it was sold back to the estate.
