The Old Congregational Church
Dated 1845. Sandstone "brick" with ashlar dressings. Then more a Church Commissioners type, unusually in a Tudor-gothic style. Battlemented gable end three bay front with gabled centrepiece flanked by octagonal turrets, their top two storeys ashlar faced and crenellated with vertical porch. Pierced balustraded coping to gable with clock face in apex and date inscribed. Coved string carried over turrets from side bays. High set weathered sill string. Flanking bays have four centred arch single lights in chamfered surrounds with drip moulds. Large three-light mullioned transomed lancet group to centrepiece under four-centred arch with drip mould. Four-centred arch doorway reused
for two orders. Four bays each side articulated by shallow buttresses, plain parapet. Two-light mullioned full height windows with diamond headed glazing under Tudor drip mould arches. Reset date stone confirming early C18 foundation of 1705 (repaired 1805 before rebuild) in rear gable end. Large three-light "east" window with similar Perpendicular detail.
Interior although altered as residence retains good "Perpendicula" cast iron staircase rising behind central doorway as imperial split flight to serve gallery with mahogany handrail and cantilevered ashlar stops. Gallery remains in post with quatrefoil panelling. Cusped roof trusses. Crucial village centre site at T junction.
