TIVERTON

SS9512 ST PETER STREET, Tiverton
848-1/6/309 (West side)
Memorial Rooms

GV II

Memorial rooms, probably associated with the United Reformed
(formerly Congregational) Church. 1863 (datestone). Local grey
limestone ashlar with a slate roof gabled at ends; coursed
grey limestone chimney stack and shaft with cornice and three
old terracotta pots. Early English style.
PLAN: sited between No.2 St Peter Street (qv) and the United
Reform Church (qv), forming an attractive C19 group. The
Memorial Rooms project forward from No.2, to the left (south)
and are end on to the street with an entrance on the south
side.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys. Symmetrical 3-window front, gabled to the
front with a coped gable with kneelers and a finial. Deep
chamfered string courses at first and second-floor levels.
Ground floor has a triple lancet with 3 large lights and a
continuous hoodmould with label stops. Windows have horizontal
glazing bars. Similar triple lancet to first floor with plaque
at second floor string course with `Memorial Rooms' carved in
Lombardic script. Similar first floor triple lancet, but here
the centre light is taller and glazed with diamond leaded
panes, possibly the original glazing pattern.
The left (south) return is blind except for a 2-centred
doorway with a hoodmould. The door has vertical sunk panels
and intersecting blind tracery in the tympanum. The rear
elevation has two first and two second floor lancets with
chamfered architraves.
INTERIOR: not inspected but may be of interest.
