History

Early C20 (said to be c.1910); purpose-built for indoor roller-skating, then becoming a fashionable sport. Cresselly House has long been the home of the Allen family and this building was built by Henry Seymour Allen.

Exterior

Barn-like rubble building with rubble quoins and window jambs and half-hipped slate roof with tiled ridge and finials; central ventilator. The pebbledashed N side was built as the front and has shallow crenellated porch with cement-rendered dressings. The S side has gables over the three large mullioned and transomed windows with small-pane glazing and concrete lintels. Tall square-headed entrance to E end.

Interior

At the N side of the building, centrally, a chamfered segmental arch opens onto a tiled lobby with Gents' and Ladies' toilets to either hand; half glazed and panelled inner doors. Internally there is a utilitarian roof on steel trusses with cambered ties. It is probable that the rink originally had a wood-block floor.
