rubble stack topped with C19 brick; slate roof.

Corrage (q.v.) and Coleford Gospel Hall (q.v.). 2 storeys. Balanced but not
symmetrical 2-window front including 2 first floor 16-pane sashes (that to right a
horned replacement) with a single ground floor 12-pane sash between. At left end a
C19 plank door with small window and late C19 railings and gate in front which has
alternate spear and fleur-de-lys finials. Rear elevation has 1 C19 20-pane sash,
