Presbyterian church and sunday school. 1691 and 1880. Restored 1897. Coursed sandstone rubble. Church has stone slate roof. North and south walls each of 3 bays. Windows are of 4 lights with leaded glazing, stone hoods, plastered surrounds, and recessed plastered mullions.

Against the west wall is a single- storey porch added in 1971. Adjoining to the east is the schoolroom, with a Welsh slate roof running at right angles to the main roof. Its south gable wall has a window with plain reveals, and a similar doorway to its left. Above the window is a stone inscribed: 'Erected in 1691. Rebuilt in AD 1880...'. Interior: the 2 roof trusses have ovolo-moulded tie-beams, and raking struts now boxed with pine. Attached to a pew end is part of an original pew dated '1691'.
