Baptist church now Islamic school, with attached forecourt railings and gate piers. Dated 1877 on 1st-floor band; altered. Sandstone ashlar, slate roof. Debased Romanesque style. Rectangular plan on triangular site, set back facing the angle. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, a gabled 3-bay facade (1:3:1 windows), symmetrical, with a chamfered plinth, rusticated quoins to the corners and both sides of the outer bays at 1st floor, a broad band between floors now mostly plain but with raised lettering "1877" towards the right-hand end, and an open pedimental gable with a plain frieze over the outer bays and moulded coping. The centre has a pair of round-headed doorways at ground floor with squat set-in colonnettes which have crocket caps, semicircular overlights, horseshoe hood-moulds with foliated stops, and panelled double doors, and at 1st floor a large round-headed window with 2 round-headed lights and rose tracery in the head, flanked by narrow round-headed windows, with linked hood-moulds; each of the outer bays has a stair window of 3 staggered round-headed lights at ground floor, and a narrow round-headed window above, with circular tracery. The 6-window side walls have square-headed windows at ground floor, round-headed above, and stone gutter brackets. INTERIOR remodelled: former gallery removed, upper floor inserted and ground floor partitioned. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: the triangular forecourt is enclosed by spear-headed bar railings mounted on a low stone wall with chamfered coping, and in the east side 2 pairs of gate piers with pyramidal tops and ramped iron gates. Forms group with associated former school (now Jamia Mosque) on North Street (qv) to which it is now linked at the rear, and a striking feature at the junction of 2 side streets otherwise lined with standardised terraced housing.
