Uploader's Comments

Congregational chapel, now United Reformed Church. 1866-68 by F. Drake of Leicester in a Ruskinian Venetian Gothic style. Red brick with ashlar front and hipped slate roof. Arcade with capitals of lilies, oak grapes etc. Central arched doorway flanked by a pair of lower keyed-arch doorways. Columns flanking, supporting entablature and central open pediment; capitals of columns flanking central door based on lily of the valley, the outer pair on ferns. The style of the building, particularly the naturalistic foliage, shows the influence of Ruskin. (Phooto Oct 2007).
