The Primitive Methodists built a chapel at Coniston in 1872; Colin Dews tells us that the architect was FN Penigell. It was extended with a school room in 1893, closed in 1991 and disused in 1995.

At the time of his photograph in 1997 Keith Guyler describes it as derelict. A picture on the Geolocation website dated 2013 comments that the building is unused and in a state of disrepair. Street View in 2019 shows it still disused – but the door is now boarded up instead of showing broken panes

There are three foundation stones set into the wall; only that nearest the entrance remains legible: ‘Memorial Stone Laid By Mrs. Geo. Hodge August 14th 1872’.
