There is a well illustrated piece about the conversion of this chapel into a residence in the Spring 2014 issue of the Interiors supplement to cumbrialife  magazine. When I visited the site earlier this year the building was for sale and looking rather sorry for itself.

I've added detail of the establishment of Walton chapel from the Primitive Methodist magazine. Ventilation was clearly an important issue for chapels and their builders!
