and attached railings


Former meeting house. c.l850. Brick, stucco and roof of slate.
Two storeys over basement, five-window range. Steps up to
flat-arched entrance with cornice on consoles in a lower wing
set back to the left; there is a flat-arched window above with
moulded stucco architrave and cornice; between the entrance
bay and the main front is a narrow bay, with a flat-arched
window on each floor with moulded stucco architraves. The main
front is framed by chamfered quoins and divided into three
bays by brick pilaster strips. Ground- and first-floor windows
flat-arched with moulded stucco architrave and cornice on
consoles; sill band to first-floor windows; eaves cornice with
paired brackets. Hipped roof with side stacks, the two bays to
the left having a stepped parapet and side stack. Cast iron
railings flanking the entrance with palmette ornaments.
The interior, though largely gutted at the time of inspection,
retains the original staircase with stone steps, roll-moulding
to the dado and cornice; the upstairs room appears to have
been furnished as a meeting room and retains:
tongue-and-groove panelling to the dado; cornice; a screen to
the east end with moulded panelling and cornice; and a coved
ceiling to the three north-western bays with elaborately
moulded beams. The window architraves on this floor have been
removed, but remain in the building.
