Anglican Chapel at Highland Road Cemet
Cemetery chapel. Circa 1854 designed by Thomas Ellis Owen. Gothic style. Built of grey stone rubble with Bath stone dressings and slate roof with central lead base remaining, probably to a spirelet. Rectangular two bay structure.
EXTERIOR: The west end has a gabled bellcote with pseudo-machicolations beneath. Below is a blank lancet window and gabled porch with pointed arch with stone colonnettes and double door with scrolled iron hinges. The north and south sides have carved stone brackets to eaves and arched windows with double trefoils and quatrefoils above divided by stone buttresses. The east end has a larger arched window with triple trefoils below and pattern of quatrefoils above, under dripmoulding with stone corbels. There is a deep plinth and a band to the east end only.
HISTORY: Highland Road Cemetery was the only cemetery to be built by Thomas Ellis Owen. This stone Gothic style Anglican chapel forms an interesting contrast with the Byzantine style Non-conformist chapel in polychrome brickwork.
