Each flanking wing has to the ground floor a folding door of 6 raised and fielded panels under fanlight with radial glazing and to the first floor a round-headed sash with radial glazing and glazing bars in recessed rounded surrounds. Ramped coped parapets. Interior: the interior survives completely unaltered save for the insertion of an organ (1896, by Foster and Andrews of Hull). There is a balcony with raised and fielded panelling around 3 sides carried on slender cast-iron columns which are spaced so as to seem equidistant when viewed from the Minister's desk. The church is fully provided with box-pews in raised and fielded panelling. The flanking wings contain cut-string stairs with stick balusters and ramped and wreathed handrails: there is a similar, short, stair to the pulpit. This is the best preserved early C19 chapel in North Humberside. Franks, Rev S W and Smith, E B "Zion United Reform Church, Cottingham" (published by the Church Meeting).
