The Chapel House


Non-conformist chapel and attached cottage, under conversion to single
dwelling at time of survey. 1759 with early C19 additions and C20
alterations. Red brick in Flemish bond (English bond to rear); Welsh slate
roof, the front slates graduated. New 2 storeys throughout, 3:2 bays. Former
chapel on left has 6-panel door beneath segmental brick arch with keystone;
small casement window over. To left of door are 2 large, round-headed windows
with projecting stone sills, C20 casements and brick arches with keystones.
To right of door is a casement under segmental arch with keystone and a
blocked doorway (now window) with similar head; C20 3-light casement window
over. Early C19 cottage set slightly back on right has chequered brickwork
with pale headers and has two C20 casements with glazing bars to ground floor
and single window above. The range of buildings has boxed eaves and brick end
stacks. Rear: much altered; remains of 2 segmental arches in rear wall of
chapel. Interior: altered; floor inserted in chapel over which are 2 original
King-post trusses, one now with tie-beam cut through. Built by followers of
John Johnson (Baptist Minister in Liverpool 1741-7); in late C19 became a
preaching station of Higher Lane Chapel, Lymm; used from 1924 as house and
workshop. Listed primarily for its historical importance in the development
of non-conformist worship in this area.
