(south side)
Illogan Highway Methodist
Church Hall

Wesleyan Methodist chapel, now meeting hall and Sunday School. Dated 1839 on
gable wall; altered. Killas rubble brought to courses, uncoursed rubble sides and
rear, with granite quoins and dressings, slate roof. Rectangular plan, 3x3 bays,
gable to road. Single-storey, but with a 2-storey 3-bay facade in unorthodox
style; this has a chamfered plinth, a projected centre containing a large round-
headed doorway with panelled double doors and fanlight with radiating glazing
bars, coupled round-headed windows over the door, a datestone above these with
raised date "1839", and a Romanesque-style triple-lancet in the gable, with a
sill-band; the flanking bays each have a large round-headed window, and all
these windows have radiating glazing bars. Chamfered gable coping. The side
walls have matching windows, and there is a lean-to extension at the rear with
a doorway. Interior not inspected. History: the second of 3 successive chapels on
this site, which collectively illustrate the progress of Methodism and are included
for that reason. Reference: Thomas Shaw, op.cit.
