The Bethlehem chapel was built ca. 1797 by John Chapman. It was opened by William Huntington. The chapel has remained virtually unchanged since the 18th century. There is a short history on the chapel web site -- see links below

There is no graveyard at the chapel. However older burials may have taken place at the (Anglican) Parish church - St. Mary Magdalene which is a short walk away.
