This chapel was built in 1863 in a simple 19th century Gothic style with red brick and white dressings and diamond-shaped patterns above the windows and door. By 1963 it was evident that extensive renovations were needed and these were carried out between 1963 and 1992. Attendance has always been reported as quite high even into its 125th anniversary year. However, congregations have got much smaller in recent years and in 2011 it was reported that closure seemed highly likely. Fortunately, in 2013 the chapel is still open for worship, having become a joint Methodist, Anglican and United Reformed Church.
