The Point-in-View
SY 08 SW 6/64 6.12.49.
1811. Built by the Misses Parminter as a small non-conformist chapel surrounded
by single storey almshouses for 4 spinsters. One room, now the Vestry, was
enclaved as a school for 6 "poor female children". The low square building
is rendered white. There is a centre flat roofed entrance porch and all the
windows are pointed with diagonal glazing bars. A 4 sided lead spire rises
above the chapel or 'Point Room'. Miss Jane Parminter is buried here. In 1878,
the Minister, the Rev J F Guenett, designed a pipe organ with pipes laid horizontally
(instead of the usual vertical construction) beneath the rostrum. The organ
has a folding console which is also a reading desk, thus making the maximum
use of space in the tiny chapel.
