Built to seat 431, at the time of the 1940 Statistical Returns, it could seat 340. It is still in use as a Methodist church.

The drawing of the interior shows a typical Wesleyan chapel of the mid-Nineteentn century, complete with a prominent pulpit and organ. Keith Guyler’s photograph, from British Methodist Buildings, shows that it was still standing proud after 134 years.
