03/10/74 Synagogue


Synagogue. 1912-13, by Joseph Sunlight. Sandstone ashlar
facade to stock-brick carcase, slate roof with copper-clad
dome. Main vessel parallel to road and centred on a dome, with
projected gable, tower and staircase forming the main
features. Square tower with entrance in base, wide gable to
left, square flat-roofed staircase block to right. The tower
has corner pilasters, a moulded round-headed doorway in a
rectangular surround, with an arched band of Hebrew lettering
round the head and a recessed door; a small rectangular window
over the doorway and one very narrow square-headed lancet in
each side above; and an open-arcaded cupola or tabernacle with
domed roof. The wide gable to the left has a very large
segmental-headed 3-light window at 1st floor with zig-zag
enrichment round the head, 3 pairs of square-headed mullioned
windows at ground floor; and parapeted kneelers to the gable.
The staircase to the right, to half the height of the tower,
has one segmental-headed window in each side, with sills at
different levels. In each side the gable end of the main
vessel (which is of brick) has a segmental-headed 3-light
window similar to that at the front but higher and smaller.
Rear and interior not inspected.
