Segmental pointed double-leaf plank doors inside. Two 4-light windows of

font has shaft of quatrefoil section with chevron moulding. Quartered bowl with
lozenge moulding. Simple chamfered benches, probably original. Mid/late C20

interesting example of a distinctively Victorian building type, which was then
'new in idea and practice'.
