Baptist chapel; unoccupied at time of survey (1991). Dated
1851 on frieze; by James Green of Todmorden; altered.
Sandstone ashlar (sides and rear of coursed squared
sandstone); hipped slate roofs. Classical style. Rectangular
plan, plus a small projecting wing on the left.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys over a basement treated as a plinth, 3
bays, symmetrical (except for the wing), the centre wider and
breaking forwards slightly; with channelled rustication to the
ground floor, a plain band, raised quoins to the upper floor
which is slightly set back, a string course to the frieze
which is inscribed in the centre "ANNO DOMINI AENON MDCCCLI",
and modillioned eaves with a moulded cornice. At basement
level the centre has a sunk area with a central square porch
(now surmounted by a statue), flanked by flights of steps
rising to the main doorways in the outer bays. The ground
floor has round-headed openings: arcaded windows to the
centre, with radiating glazing bars, panelled aprons and
moulded impost bands, and doorways in the outer bays with
panelled double doors and cavetto surrounds, all these
openings having stepped voussoirs with keystones. In the
centre of the 1st floor is a tripartite window which has a
tetrastyle Corinthian architrave with pilasters and engaged
columns, and a balustraded pseudo-balcony and a pediment to
the centre light; and in each outer bay a segmental-headed
window in a shouldered architrave with moulded sills, panelled
apron and a keystone.
To the left the added projecting wing, of one bay and 2 low
storeys, has segmental-headed openings: a doorway to the
front, a window above this, and one window in each side, all
with simplified shouldered architraves. The 5-window
right-hand return wall, with rock-faced masonry at ground
floor and a band carried round from the front, has windows
which are square-headed at basement level, round-headed at
ground floor and segmental-headed at 1st floor.
The rear has 2 pairs of coupled windows at basement level
flanked by doorways, a tripartite window at ground floor, a
Venetian window at 1st floor, and 4 square attic windows.
