History

It is said that Crawshay Bailey junior (died 1887) gave this Assembly Room to the parish. If so it must date from 1880-1887. Its appearance would suggest a c1885 date. It is a standard prefabricated church design with nave and transepts, but is here used as a hall with the east end and transepts as separate rooms.

Crawshay Bailey II was the only son of Crawshay Bailey I, the leading ironmaster, pioneer of the coal industry and promoter of the railways. The Crawshay Baileys were one of the most powerful South Wales families of their time.

Exterior

Corrugated iron sheeting on a timber frame, the roof has been replaced, but the walls are probably original. Nave, transepts, south porch, Gothic style. The entrance elevation has the steeply gabled porch to the left with scalloped bargeboards and a double plank door in a pointed arch. Three 2-light windows with narrow mullions and transom and Gothic heads. A larger 3-light one with two mullions in the transept gable with smaller single light one above. Bargeboards with spike finials. Similar 3-light window and gable in gable end of nave. The opposite gable has a small fleche shaped window in the gable apex. Rear elevation similar to the front.

Interior

Four bay hall with principal rafter roof with the principals coming down to moulded bracket stops. Plain boarded dado.

Reasons for Listing

Included as scarce example of a well designed and unaltered late C19 pre- fabricated iron church hall.
