This chapel was built in 1833 in the local stone and opened in October of that year, the building being registered at the county quarter sessions as a nonconformist meeting place on the 14th October of that year by John Whittaker, William Tunley, Edward Cash, George Jamson & Thomas Morris. The commemorative stone just bears the date "1833". In 1851 the chapel had seating for 90 worshippers. On Census Sunday 30 March 1851 there were 32 worshippers at their morning srvice and 67 at their evening service. In addition there were 41 children at their Sunday School in the morning and 20 in the evening. In 1860 the chapel was enlarged and in 1869 the chapel was improved and a pulpit installed, on which they spent £55. The chapel closed on the 5th of December 1976 when there were only 5 members remaining. The chapel has now been converted to residential use. The building was de-registered as a place of worship in March 2016.
