A second block, possibly a meeting room, is mostly rendered and colourwashed with a hipped natural slate roof and lead rolls. Plan: rectangular plan chapel, built on a site that slopes down to the rear. This allows access to the chapel from Chapel Street with steps from the street down to a school below the chapel with further access to the school from the right return. A low-roofed, single-storey rectangular meeting room is attached to the front right corner of the chapel and broken forward from its front elevation - this may be contemporary with the chapel.

Symmetrical 3-bay front to chapel, the centre bay broken forward. Plinth with moulded cornice. Left and right clasping pilasters with moulded capitals; front has entablature including projecting cornice and parapet rising as a shallow gable over the centre bay. Central, wide, open porch with Tuscan columns, the sides infilled and partly glazed. Porch has entablature including projecting cornice and a parapet rising as a shallow gable in the centre. Paired c1860s doors, each with 2 vertical panels; plain overlight. Ground floor has two 3 over 6-pane early C19 hornless sashes, upper tier of 3 similar 12-pane sashes. To right of the chapel, steps lead down to a plain vertical plank door giving access to the schoolroom. To the right, broken forward, a 3-bay square-on-plan meeting room has a blind front elevation with blind arcading with pilasters with moulded capitals and bases. Right return of meeting room similar, rear elevation has 2 probably early C19 12-pane hornless sashes and 2 C20 basement timber windows with brick surrounds. The right return of the chapel block is 4 bays with early C19 hornless 12-pane sashes lighting the chapel and gallery and 2 segmental-headed 4 over 8-pane sashes to the schoolroom on the ground floor. 2-leaf plank door to schoolroom with 4-pane overlight. Moulded cornice at gallery floor level extends round rear elevation of meeting room block, suggesting contemporary date. Left return of chapel preserves early C19 12-pane sashes.
