(Image dates 2008, 2014 and November 2021). November 2008 shows the chapel, an attractive red brick building still in use for services at this time (sign notes 'Dunsford Baptist Church, Divine Service 3.00 P.M.'). Building is built with gable end to the road and has a central doorway flanked by narrow windows, all with stone-edged arched tops. The doorway has an arched mullion-and-transomed fanlight above. A simple rose window is positioned above beneath the gable.
By 2014, the church no longer has its sign and the 2021 image shows evidence of conversion to residential use; door replaced and woodwork painted, as well as flue added to side building and Velux window in roof.
