10/53 Former Wesleyan Chapel
Former chapel, now antiques showroom. Erected 1850, enlarged 1861/63. Local lias stone cut and squared. Ham stone
dressings; Welsh slate roof with stepped coped street gable. Single storey, 3-bay gabled facade. Below, a chamfered
pointed-arch central doorway with part-glazed doors, under foliage-stop label; 16-pane display windows now added to
either side; above a triple lancet window with matching label, with plaque giving building dates of 1850 and 1863 and
also a circular vent in the gable crown. Side elevations each have 2 Y-traceried 2-light windows without labels;
extensions to rear include a 2-bay unit with 2 single-lancet windows and plain pointed arched door between. Interior
