II

Unitarian Chapel. Dated 1722. Red brick (Flemish bond) with black brick plinth and 2 parallel hipped plain tile roofs. Aligned north-east/south-west facing north-east. 2 storeys with paired pilasters at the corners supporting the ends of the moulded eaves cornices of the side elevations; broken on this front to accommodate the upper windows which are on a higher level. The arrangement suggests an open pediment, truncated by the 2 hipped ends of the roof. Regular 4 window front of narrow outer and wide inner windows; fixed lights with diamond latticed panes in cast iron mullioned and transomed frames, beneath segmental arches. 4-bay side elevations with similar windows and entrance at the north-east end of the north-west front. To the rear are C19 additions containing the principal entrance. Interior: The ground floor has been modernised but the chapel retains its original oak panelled galleries and panelled pulpits flanked by alcoves designed for the C18 theological students.
