SUMMER LANE 1. 5176 Withycombe Raleigh The Point-in-View SY 08 SW 6/64 6.12.49. I 2. 1811. Built by the Misses Parminter as a small non-conformist chapel surrounded by single storey almshouses for 4 spinsters. One room, now the Vestry, was enclaved as a school for 6 "poor female children". The low square building is rendered white. There is a centre flat roofed entrance porch and all the windows are pointed with diagonal glazing bars. A 4 sided lead spire rises above the chapel or 'Point Room'. Miss Jane Parminter is buried here. In 1878, the Minister, the Rev J F Guenett, designed a pipe organ with pipes laid horizontally (instead of the usual vertical construction) beneath the rostrum. The organ has a folding console which is also a reading desk, thus making the maximum use of space in the tiny chapel.
