1899, the gift of John Grover a Hindhead builder who did much work for R. Norman

Dressed random masonry with freestone quoins. Steeply pitched swept tiled roof
has bell turret, with tall shingled spirelet, on ridge. Lunettes in stone-coped
gable ends. Three light leaded casements. Peaked segmental porch coping. Simple,
well-proportioned interior with roof supported by moulded ties on long corbels.
Moulded wood cornice. Twin stone arches to organ and vestry. Original oak benches
with cushions covered in tapestry designed by W.R. Lethaby. Similar but smaller
