Trewellard Wesleyan Chapel
Fairly large nonconformist (Wesleyan) chapel. 1833 datestone, refitted late C19. Granite ashlar front, otherwise granite rubble with granite dressings; concrete tile roof with coped ends, the front end as a triangular pediment. Rectangular aisle-less plan with gallery on 4 sides. 2-storey side elevations; symmetrical 2-window front with round-arched openings. late C19 horned sashes with spoked fanlight heads (also to 1st-floor of side elevations). Wide central doorway with good spoked fanlight and pair of single-panel doors.
INTERIOR retains original panelled and moulded gallery front to 3 sides with canted corners and carried on slender Tuscan columns, also there is a very fine moulded and carved plaster ceiling rose. The late C19 gallery at the ritual east end has turned balusters and panelled piers. The rostrum is of a similar date with lectern broken forward from a turned balustrade and standing on a pair of Tuscan end columns with a round blind arch between. The pitch-pine pews are also late C19 as is the organ and a glazed chancel screen with Gothic detail. The attached vestry and other rooms retain some original features including a moulded chimneypiece with corner blocks and roundels. This is a good example of a galleried chapel within a mining village.
