Although thee is no datestone or denominational stone visible on the chapel, on 15 June 1984 they held a special service to celebrate their 150th anniversary. The chapel was built in 1834 at a cost of 420. In 1851 the chapel had seating for just over 200 worshippers. On Census Sunday 30 March 1851 there were 97 worshippers at their morning service and 76 at their evening one. They had between 80 and 85 Sunday scholars. In 1877 the interior was thoroughly renovated with new seating and a new rostrum, at a cost of 120. In 1880 a Sunday School was erected adjoining the chapel. This chapel, with a former manse at one end, seems to be still ongoing in 2016.
