"A List And Brief Details Of Chapels In The Coningsby Circuit Past And Present" prepared by Colin Shepherdson September 1997 (Revised July 1998) states that :-

"A house was registered for worship in 1797 and the first chapel, also known as Swineshead Chapel Hill, erected in 1817.

A second chapel was erected on the same site in 1843.

The present chapel was opened on the 18.4.1904, again on the same site, and the last service was held in 30.6.1996 when the membership was 6.

Chapel Hill remained on the plan until June 1997 and the chapel is now standing disused"

Image shows that it has now been converted into a private dwelling.
