Snecked squared rubble with ashlar dressings. Welsh slate roof with pierced terracotta ridge tiles. Chamfered plinth and mid-height band, hollow-chamfered below. End elevation to street has a central polygonal bay with two tiers of windows and a projecting porch to the right with a lintel inscribed 'PRIMITIVE METHODIST CHAPEL 1882'. Foundation stone (on bay) commemorating Henry Waugh, d.1884, for 50 years a local preacher....
