2/80 United Reformed Church


- II

Church, built 1878; by T. Lewis Banks. Ham stone ashlar with some polychromy;
Welsh slate roof with ornamental clay ridge tiles between coped gables.
Notionally 2-storeys, in a Romanesque style. Street facade is actually an end
gable proud of two short side wings, giving effectively 3-bays: projecting
central doorway with semi-circular recessed arch of three orders, corbelled
gable; doorway flanked on each side by semi-circular headed window and buttress
to pilaster: above a 5-window arcade with semi-circular arches having pink
marble columns; gable corbelled and bearing 1878 datestone. The side wings
lower, with semi-circular headed doorways and long thin semi-circular headed
windows above. South return elevation in random local stone with ashlar
dressings, of 6-bays, with shouldered flat-arch windows to ground floor and
semi-circular arched windows above. The 1901 rooms and the asbestos cement
sheeting clad buildings to the rear not of interest. Interior: extended gallery
at 'West' end, below which are C20 meeting rooms, and a 3-bay double colonnade
with Byzantine caps (inserted 1923); fittings of 1878. Replaces earlier chapel
of 1792 (set back from road, between nos 11 and 15).
