On the corner of Bath Street and Brighton Road, immediately adjoining the English Methodist Church.

Built in 1877, and used as the Manse until 1967, and then as offices. Red-brick with blue and yellow-brick dressings and slate roof with scalloped bands and terracotta crestings. Domestic Gothic style of a kind typically used for manses, rectories, etc. Two storeys, asymmetrically planned. Main elevation faces Bath Street, and is a 2-window range with advanced gable towards the left. This has 2-storeyed rectangular bay window with 4 mullioned lights divided by a high transom. Panelled painted timberwork apron between the storeys. Half-hipped gable has bargeboards and braced collar with foiled panelling above it. Single storeyed bay window to right is also mullioned and transomed, with 2-light casement window above. Entrance in lean-to glazed and timber porch against left-hand (Brighton Road) return of the gable, its doorway facing Bath Street. Chamfered shouldered doorway and overlight. Continuous 5-light glazing in return side, with trefoiled mullions and quatrefoil lights above a high-set transom. Painted glass in leaded lights. Wide gable to Bath Street elevation beyond has paired mullioned and transomed windows on each floor (with leaded lights and painted glass in lower right-hand window), with flat arched stone heads to ground floor, and cambered banded brick heads above. Bargeboards of gable are linked by collar and braced king post truss. Rear slope of gable extends over outshut beyond.

Included as a good example of manse architecture, which has group value with the English Methodist Church.
