9/37 Masonic Lodge
Former Methodist Chapel now Masonic Lodge. Late C19 of random coursed rockfaced rubble with squared quoins, ashlar dressings and timber-framed superstructure with roughcast infill on brick skin. Plain tile roof. Nave and south-east corner tower. 4-bay nave with trefoil-headed windows set in pairs in alternate sections of the framework, all with geometric patterned stained glass. Tower has a pyramidal roof on bracketted eaves and stairway to the east facade under a lean- to canopy, all in wood. West facade of chapel has a Caernarvon-arched doorway with 2-leaf plank doors. The former chapel was built by the Wills family and makes an important visual contribution to the villagescape with Mill House (q.v.) and Gauge House (q.v.).
