4/8 Bulkeley Methodist


Methodist Church, 1861 (on stone tablet in gable tympanum). Red
brick, in Flemish Bond, with slate roof. 2 bays. Stone plinth. The
south gable entrance is a pair of 2-panel doors, in recessed doorcase
with stained glass radial bar fanlight above. The gable facade and
side elevations have tall, narrow, sashes with glazing bars and
semi-circular heads. The door and windows in the facade have moulded
stone heads with imposts and keystones. The wooden pediment, with
consoles to eaves, apex and raking cornice, is closed by a slender
stone band. The tympanum of the pediment contains a stone tablet
inscribed Jubilee Primitive Methodist Chapel with the date.
Interior: The reredos is an arcade of 3 semi-circular arches with
fluted pilasters and imposts. This is surmounted by a recessed
gallery opening with turned balusters and moulded handrail. The space
above the rail is filled by a pair of horizontally sliding shutters
each of which has four ogee headed panels. The opening is flanked by
a wide lining with inward facing consoles to the head and has a
moulded cast iron, trumeau-like, column at the centre of the opening.
The pine hexagonal pulpit is flanked on both sides by three
ogee-headed panels which have tall end-posts with lamp standards. The
Communion Rail, of turned balusters, is canted back at 45° to meet
these posts. Panelled wainscoting to walls and pitch pine benches.
Single marble memorials to the coursed stucco side walls. Small wood
panelled internal porch with 4-panel doors both sides. Plaster
cornice to ceiling and large ornate ceiling rose. An intact and
pleasing example of a small chapel of the date.
