Kingsnorth chapel was originally part of the Tenterden Mission of the Bible Christian denomination that existed from 1815 until 1907, when it became 'United Methodist'. It was established in 1837, and rebuilt in 1879. It is about 2 miles from the former Beaver Congregational chapel in Kingsnorth Toad, Ashford.

Sorry to bring this one up after a while.
The Chapel along Ashford Road, is now a private residence from permitted planning applications into a single dwelling from around 1999. I have tried to look for further info but I have not found any yet on when it was built.
The quote from 'Victorian Churches of Kent' is to a different church along the built up part of Kingsnorth Road where it meets Beaver Road near the town centre. The small chapel is still there with a business premises next to it.
More info on its history can be found here http://www.kurc.org.uk/cade_rd.htm
Hope this helps.

Quite intrigued that they only got round to withdrawing its licence at least two years after it was in use as a workshop and 16 years after the merger!

London Gazette reports on 12 May 1986 that the registration of Kingsnorth Chapel was cancelled for marriages by the Registrar General as it was no longer used by the congregation.
