Congregational Church now Jehovah's Witnesses. Foundation
stone dated 30 APRIL 1860, by Ralph Nicholson of Halifax;
extension dated on foundation stone 5 AUGUST 1878, by the same
Quarry-faced calciferous sandstone with flush quoins and
flying buttresses. Graduated greenslate roofs, pyramidal in
centre with finial; ashlar ridge chimney stacks.
3-storey central octagonal drum has flanking 2-storey, 3- and
4-bay wings; further 3-bay left extension. Drum has 3 faces at
front and rear, each face having pointed arched blind ground
floor windows and 5-light first floor lancets; tracery windows
above in gabled 1/2 dormers, but one on each side has an
uninscribed stone panel instead. Wings have pointed arched
doorways the one on the right, up steps, within a gabled stone
porch. Pointed porch and lancets some of them paired.
Extension has similar door in gabled porch and lancets.
Lecture room has apsidal ends, lancets and traceried windows.
INTERIOR of drum has had all fixtures and fittings removed;
the galleries remain, boxed in with false ceiling. Beaty
(1905) says "the arrangements of the interior are not
satisfactory". Plans for the extension are in Cumbria County
Record Office, Ca/E4/1094.
