Congregational church. 1752-3, altered in C19. Red brick in Flemish bond with
dressings of blue brick, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. Rectangular plan
facing SE, with early C19 vestry to rear. One storey, but formerly with a
gallery, so externally of 2 storeys. 3-window range of cross windows, those on
the ground floor with segmental arches of red brick, those in the upper range
with flat heads of alternate red and blue bricks. Double 6-panel doors standing
forward in shallow gabled porch with flat brick arch and ball finial, added
1895. Recessed stone tablet over door inscribed 'Bvilded circa 1700, restored
1895' (the former date is erroneous). String course at first floor level.
Plaster coving below eaves. Hipped roof. Inscription low in right return, 'T.
Brown 1752' is probably by the master mason. In the rear elevation there are 2
altered windows at half-height, of 7 lights with semi-circular heads. The
interior was originally arranged with the pulpit on the long NW wall and
galleries on the other 3 sides; in 1895 the pulpit was moved to the short SW
wall and the galleries removed. The windows in the SW wall were blocked.
Marble tablet to the Reverend William Kemp, 1844, on SW wall.
