It is possible that this chapel had changed allegiance as in the following small vignette from Manx Sun 7 Dec 1844 it is described as 'Primitive Methodist':

On Wednesday night, a little girl, aged 11 years, daughter of John Cowin, weaver, in the parish of Lonan, was observed to he missing, after her parents had returned from a prayer-meeting in the Primitive Methodist, Chapel at the Cloven Stones. Much time was spent in searching for her, and no little alarm occasioned by her absence. , After some time, it was recollected that she had been seen in the chapel : search was made there ; it was found that she had been locked up in the chapel. She had fallen asleep in one of the seats, and had thus been left ; but on awakening. was nowise afraid, and began to read a Bible at one of the windows by moonlight, and was so engaged when rescued.
