10/46 Baptist Chapel
and School Room


Baptist Chapel and schoolroom dated 1832 on plaque at gable
end. The two-storey porch at the front was probably added at
the same time as the ministers room at the rear, in 1855. Grey
brick with low pitch slate roof. Principal elevation in gable
end and in two stages and three recessed bays, each with an
elliptical arch. The two outer bays each have five hung sashes
with glazing bars, the lower windows retaining their original
shutters, but the centre bay of the original facade is now
obscured by the two-storey porch which is also grey brick and
slate, with a pedimented gable end and sawtooth cornice. Round
headed arch to recessed bay in gable end and similar arch to
window at first floor and to doorway. The tall, tapering
chimney stack to the schoolroom was probably also added in
1855. The ministers room is of grey brick and slate and of one
storey. There is a brick dated 1855 in one end. Contemporary
with the chapel are part of the chapel yard wall, the gate piers
and the wrought iron gates and arched lamp holder. Inside the
chapel has a two-stage pulpit with fluted pilasters at the
corners and a gallery and pews all probably 1855. The
schoolroom is divided from the main body of the chapel by a
series of screens, also original, which are raised when there is
a need to accommodate a larger congregation.
