Baptist Church
Chapel (Particular and Calvinistic). 1840 by James Wilson of Bath for
£4,000. White brick with rendered details. Neo-Norman. Moulded plinth
supporting 3 pairs of octagonal turrets, with bracketed parapet, raised
as gable over centre, with moulded parapet and pedestal. Two paired
round headed lancets either side of centre piers, with cill band, and
3 roll moulded orders. Central multi-order window surround taken down
to plinth, with 3 lights with intersecting heads. Giant arches to left
and to right frame traceried plank and stud doors with attached column
and moulded surrounds, with Lombard frieze over. Plain side and rear
elevations. The width of main elevation a result of this being the
side of the chapel. Interior: large, unaisled space, with arcaded
galleries on end walls, little decoration apart from window mouldings
and cornice. The architect and client (Reverend James Matlock Daniell)
originally intended a belfry, objected to by Trinity House, who had
already donated £1,000 to St. Georges (see item 9/62 ). Daniell gave
the name Cavendish Street to the road developed 1839-80 by Woodward
and Grundy, 2 Ramsgate builders. (See BOE Kent II, 1983, p.426, "fun
in a sick sort of way"; see also Busson, Ramsgate, pages 66 and 75;
