Pool Methodist Church

Wesleyan Methodist chapel. Dated 1862 in gable; enlarged 1865; altered. Snecked
killas with granite quoins and dressings, sides and rear of uncoursed rubble,
modern pantiled roof. Rectangular plan on north-south axis, 3x6 bays (originally
3x3), gable to road. Two storeys; the symmetrical 3-bay facade has a wide
basket-arched doorway in the centre, with panelled doors and an overlight, a
round-headed window above the door, and tall round-headed windows on each
side (their heads at the same level), all these openings with long-and-short
voussoirs and raised keystones; the gable contains a moulded roundel with the
date "1862", and marks round the margin of its triangle suggest that the
dressings of a former simple pediment have been removed. Ridge ventilator on
roof. The side walls have a quoined vertical joint to the rear of the 3rd bay,
and 16-pane sashed windows on both floors, and the east side has tall doorways
in the 5th and 6th bays. Interior: horseshoe gallery on iron Tuscan columns with
coupled brackets supporting a jettied front which is panelled; basket-arched apse
to choir gallery (containing organ) with classical-style architrave including
pilasters with imposts, moulded cornice, and small pediment with acanthus
decoration; rostrum supported by low Tuscan colonnade, deck protected by
Gothic-style trefoil arcading and approached by elegant curved staircases rising
from the rear.
