- Baptist Chapel
Baptist chapel. 1835, by George Spratt who became the first pastor. Red
brick, with a pilaster strip to each wall. Hipped slated roof. 2 storeys. A
very unusual plan in the form of an elongated hexagon. Inset sash windows
with glazing bars under flat brick arches. At narrow end to north a small C19
brick porch with mid C20 glazed doors; inside the porch a pair of C19 panelled.
doors. C19 single-storey vestry to south. Interior has a continuous
hexagonal gallery with plain front and pulpit opposite the entrance. Lower
seating probably renewed late C19; gallery seating original, with box pews at
north end and open-backed benches at the sides. Interior altered early 1980's
to form 3 Sunday School rooms. A smaller chapel of similar plan was built by
George Spratt at Friston in 1833. The shape which resembles a coffin, is said
to be an object lesson to the mortality of life.
