Built 1822 as congregational town chapel. Pediment gabled, galleried, but with
the front appearing as one main storey with the 2 storeys expressed on the side
elevation over a basement (falling ground). Carefully designed 3 bay elevation
of thin hammer faced stone 'bricks'. The wall plane is slightly recessed each
end creating a 'quoin pilaster', and in the centre as a round arched panel
reaching up with the pediment gable and containing the entrance. A thin ashlar
band course defines the pediment and is carried in over central recess and
extended out as capping to simple coved kneelers above the 'quoin pilaster'
recesses. In the head of the central recess arch is a blocked oculus and above
a delicately lettered ashlar date plaque. 3 round arched high set windows with
squared jambs, the central window rising directly from the Greek Doric columned
porch. The latter has its blocking course raised in central and terminal dies.
Two leaf fielded panel door in squared surround. On side elevations round
arched squared jamb windows, 3 high set to gallery in centre, 2 full height ones
each end, those to west lighting stairs.
Interior retains original gallery on cast iron column and box pews. Organ loft
with gallery front returned and good pulpit. The chapel is set back with small
forecourt paved with early C19 tombstones.
