Moravian Church and attached Manse
Church and manse. Dated 1759, church altered 1875 and manse
c1900. Red brick with Welsh slate roof and brick ridge and end
stacks. Single long range with single-storey church to left
and 2-storey manse to right.
EXTERIOR: church a 3-window range of C19 stone 2-light windows
probably in the original openings under brick segmental arches
and corniced keystones. Octagonal open lantern on roof ridge.
Stone plinth and moulded stone eaves which continue to right
to the manse. To left a 6-panel door, the upper panels glazed,
with 2/2 sash over, then a 2-storey canted bay with 2/2
sashes, then a similar bay in a c1900 extension and a door
with overlight. Brick inscribed 1759 at extreme right
immediately before extension. On left end the church entrance
with 6-panel door. Church has similar windows to rear and
manse has further 2/2 sashes and lean-tos.
INTERIOR: the orientation of the church was changed in 1875
from a central cross axis entrance (blocking visible below
central windows) and the fittings date from this period, but
the panelled-front gallery may be a reworking of the original.
The roof now has open trusses, but there was originally an
attic because there is a blocked doorway leading from the
attic of the manse. Manse retains 6-panel doors, upper flights
of stick baluster stair and roof with 2 tiers of collars and
HISTORY: Leominster's Moravian congregation was established
c1750 and the church consecrated in 1761 by Bishop Gambold.
