7/125 Hale Chapel 2.3.50

G.V. II*

Presbyterian meeting house, now Unitarian chapel. 1723 with vestry and alterations of c.1880. English garden wall bond brick with slate roof. Classic early chapel plan although the gallery was removed, the vestry and bellcote built and the 2 side doors blocked in the late C19 when the gable end door came into use. 4 bays with blocked doors in bays 1 and 4, timber mullion and transom leaded windows with segmental brick arches, small buttresses and wall mounted sundial dated 1812 in bay 2. Preacher's windows on north elevation and windows to each gable, that to the west of C19. Interior: good early C18 pulpit with sounding board and splat baluster rail, box pews and oak fishbone king-post trusses. C19 stained glass. The chapel is the earliest place of worship in Hale or Halebarns and a fine example of an early non-conformist chapel.
