2. 1701. Plain, rectangular building of red brick with modest dressings of Portland stone. 2 tiers of windows, segmentally arched below and round-arched above, with semi-elliptical heads to larger, central openings in east and west elevations. Simple cornice and parapet. West doorway with segmental pediment on consoles and lamp on decorative iron bracket. Plain interior with gallery supported on Doric columns to 3 sides. Ceiling altered apparently in C19. Fittings remarkably complete and little altered from original arrangement, some being older than present building. They include wainscot, benches, railings, very finely carved echal or reredos, and 7 large brass chandeliers. This was the 2nd synagogue erected in England after the resettlement of 1656 and in its little altered state is of exceptional historic interest.
