5/107 Tunley Presbyterian Church
and Sunday School
Presbyterian church and sunday school. 1691 and 1880. Restored 1897.
Coursed sandstone rubble. Church has stone slate roof. North and south
walls each of 3 bays. Windows are of 4 lights with leaded glazing, stone
hoods, plastered surrounds, and recessed plastered mullions. The western
windows on the north and south sides are probably additions: below the
southern one there is evidence for a blocked doorway. Above the west
gable is an open timber bellcote. Against the west wall is a single-
storey porch added in 1971. Adjoining to the east is the schoolroom, with
a Welsh slate roof running at right angles to the main roof. Its south
gable wall has a window with plain reveals, and a similar doorway to its
left. Above the window is a stone inscribed: 'Erected in 1691. Rebuilt in
AD 1880...'. Interior: the 2 roof trusses have ovolo-moulded tie-beams,
and raking struts now boxed with pine. Attached to a pew end is part of
an original pew dated '1691'. Mackay, W.G., A History of the Tunley
Congregation and Church, c1980.
