The date on this chapel is 1875 but according to the statistical records of 1972 it was built in 1880. The statistical records of 1940 indicate that it suffered bomb damage.

The stone chapel is a delightful building sitting high up on the moor. It would appear that it was built on the corner of a farmer’s field. There is also a small graveyard.

In 2015 it is still open for worship.
