GV II

Baptist chapel. Dated 1832, with rear extensions of 1870 and C20, and front porch
of 1917. Rendered, under gabled-end slate roof. 2 storeys.
Front: 3 bays, under gable end with parapet, with a diamond-shaped datestone in
gable wall, each bay triangular headed and divided by giant pilasters with moulded
capitals, and identical pilaster quoins, the moulded capitals returning to form the
cornice to the side elevations. The middle bay is wider than the others. Upper
windows, 2 lights, triangular headed, 8 panes per light with diamond-shaped top
lights. The ground-floor side windows are similar but formerly served as entrances
prior to the addition of the central porch; flat-roofed, with entrance to left-hand
side, and a 3-light square-headed window to the front.
Side elevations: 5 window range, 3 to 'nave', 2 to 'chancel', those towards the
entrance end blocked; the 2-light triangular headed left hand side 'nave' windows
have lost their top lights in a 1980s double-glazing scheme, but the glazing is
intact to the right-hand side, with 8 panes per light. Red brick rear extension
(for 1870 schoolroom) and C20 roughcast room supported on stilts are of no special
architectural character.
Interior: plain ceiled roof; timber gallery at entrance end with 3 pairs of panels
with Greek key motifs divided by pilasters, under moulded cornice and rail, reached
by staircase with turned balusters. Porch window with First World War memorial
window portraying St George, St Michael and Joan of Arc.
