The late nineteenth Century Grade II Listed non conformist chapel, was constructed on reclaimed land with “snecked” limestone with Bathstone dressings beneath steeply pitched slated roof slopes.

A comprehensive programme of essential fabric repair works, including specialist stonework conservation measures, has been undertaken in conjunction with a series of sensitive alterations to afford disabled user access to the building and improve its wider community facilities.

In particular, a new Meeting Room has been created beneath the rear balcony, minimally enclosed by an expressly contemporary black aluminium framed glazed acoustic screen incorporating adjustable micro-blinds to allow for varying degrees of privacy. Its divisions and proportions respect the existing balcony fascia detailing.

A new principal entrance located axially to the Eastern end is defined by an expressed steel box frame with reveal linings in Oak; the resulting effect of a giant architrave making reference to the deeply splayed reveals of the original openings.
