In 2014 the building appears to be under refurbishment. The wooden floor may be seen lying outside the building. Its present use is unsure, it now has a UPVC house front door.

Just to let you know we purchased the church in December 2013 and are converting it into a dwelling. The church was in disrepair and in need of major work. We have replaced the roof and floor and are hopeful of completing the conversion within two years. I thought I would just update you to its status.

The conversion should be finished by now.  

There's an account by John Petty in the Primitive Methodist magazine (1828 page 311) of the opening of King's Moor Primitive Methodist chapel in the Haverford-west circuit. Opening services took place from Whit Sunday 1828. Mr Petty tells us that begun some time previously but the society ran out of money.  The building was high enough to take a gallery if needed and measured 20'(w) x 30'(l).
