8 & 9/262 Strict Baptist Chapel and
walled forecourt

Chapel. 1816, altered 1851. Red and blue chequered brick with slate hung rear
addition. Slate roof. Simple Neo-Classical style rectangular chapel with 2 storey
rear wing, the main elevation with pedimented gable containing gauged brick roundel
and gauged round headed windows either side of central panelled double doors with
traceried segmental fan and flat hood on brackets. Side elevations with brick dentil
eaves cornice and single tall window opening. All windows with late C20 top bung
casements (replacing sashes). Rear wing with sash windows and end stack. The upper
courses of the chapel show signs of the 1851 alterations, the rear wing entirely of
this date (although Homan, Victorian Churches of Kent, says the chapel was rebuilt
1851). Walled forecourt to east of chapel, c.1851 walls about 4 feet in height of red
brick in English bond on sandstone base with coping stones and slight piers to
corners and to central gate, itself with simple iron uprights. The right return side
of the forecourt formed by the gates and walls to Murlingden, item no. 8/261 built
c.1841 and predating the forecourt walls.
