GV II

Methodist church. Early C20. Snecked killas with granite ashlar quoins and
dressings, sides and rear rendered (probably on rubble), slate roof. Rectangular
plan, 3x5 bays, gable to road. Two-storey facade in free Gothic (or Arts and
Crafts) style, in a form probably derived from that of its 1839 predecessor
immediately to the left, with a wide projected centre which is gabled; the
ground floor level is of ashlar; the centre bay bay has 2 doorways flanking a
window of 2 round-headed lights, all these openings with deep chamfered reveals
and shouldered heads and the doorways containing panelled double doors with
overlights of 3 round-headed lights, a large round-headed 3-light window above
with Perpendicular tracery, deep chamfered reveal and ogival hoodmould with
trefoil crest, small coupled lancets in the gable, and moulded gable coping with
kneelers and an apex cross. The narrow side bays have shouldered single-light
windows at ground floor, quatrefoils at 1st floor, and the roof is hipped over
them. The side walls and rear have square-headed windows, the roof is half-
hipped at the rear, and there is a fleche on the ridge. Interior not inspected, but
understood to contain continous gallery, large organ, elaborate pulpit,etc.
History: the third of 3 successive chapels on this site, which collectively
illustrate the progress of Methodism and are included for that reason.
