1859 chapel still with neoclassical detailing. Sandstone "brick" with ashlar dressings.
Low pitched pediment gabled front with moulded coping. 3 bays articulated by coupled
pilaster strips, the outer quoin pilaster surmounted above blocking courses, by anthemion
dies. The recessed wall face of centre bay is carried up and arched into the gable. The
flanking bays also have shallow panels with corbelled return to the wall plane of the,
gable. They contain vertically grouped coupled round headed windows with cap imposts
and keystones, linking panel between ground and 1st floors. The centre bay has similar
but single arched window above doorway with projecting cornice on console brackets.
These details are sympathetically and effectively picked up in the large c1900 sunday

as is window type with pairs above similar doorways in flanking bays, here with side
lights. The centrepiece with pediment-gable is carried higher with 2 pairs of overarched
windows to 1st floor above large semicircular spaced voussoirs archway screening set
back ground floor windows and basement. Large hall with roof and clerestory carried on
quatrefoil pierced elliptical girder-trusses. Prominent roadside site.
