2/76 Twin Cemetery Chapels: b) Westernmost; for Non-Conformists


- II

Cemetery chapel of 1863: Local stone ashlar with Ham stone dressings, Welsh slated roofs. One of twin (handed) chapels: Greek cross plan with added colonade porch to East: South transept in form of an angled chevet; Romanesque style with some polychromy. Corner buttresses porch has semi-circular headed entrance archway with small side shafts; the returns have a semi-circular arched opening split by a column and heavily cusped tracery. South elevation has cusped lancet to 'nave' bay, then plate tracery in semi-circular arches to the chevet, and further cusped lancet to 'chancel' bay; corner buttresses with Quasi-dentilled eaves course . Triple window to West end, the centre light being divided centrally, with decorated capitals/imposts. North elevation similar to South, but with the chevet replaced by flat table with pair of doors. Small circular window in East wall over porch. Central over crossing a short gabled turret with square fine-line termination. Interior not inspected. Although architecturally adequate on its own, its value is enhanced by the 'twin' opposite.
