To 1st-floor centre and right are original round-arched windows with hornless sashes with glazing bars and fanlight heads and there is another original sash central below.
INTERIOR: original gallery with panelled front cantilevered out on paired brackets and carried on 4 Tuscan columns, and there are 2 flights of stairs leading to the gallery; original plasterwork with moulded ceiling cornices and there is an elliptical arch to the organ loft.
FITTINGS: panelled box pews with ramped ends to gallery, otherwise late C19 pitch pine pews with shaped ends. There is a very fine and unusual panelled and pilastered rostrum with vaulted octagonal lecturn rising from a moulded shelf on consoles. At either side is an open-string straight flight of stairs with turned balusters and newels. In front of the rostrum is a moulded communion rail carried on an ornate cast-iron balustrade. Behind the rostrum is a canted organ loft with pilastered and panelled front balustrade with ornate cast-iron panels with scrolled and anthemeon detail. There are late C19 choir pews behind and a large panelled pipe organ.
The gallery, box pews and unusual rostrum enhance the interest of this chapel, and there are some good original windows.
