Congregational church and Sunday school. 1833, remodelling in 1869; Sunday school added in 1922. Dressed stone rubble with limestone dressings at the front, brick dressings at rear, rendered on west side and Sunday School brick on east side. Slate roof, hipped at rear; Sunday school has Bridgewater double Roman pantiles.

Plan: Rectangular auditorium with entrance under a gallery at the south end. In 1869 the south front was given a new classical facade and the interior was refurnished. In 1922 a Sunday school was added on the right (east) side with a similar classical facade to match the main front of the church.

The flanking bays have round-headed windows. The Sunday school to right is almost a facsimile but lower without first floor windows and with large plaque inscribed "Rebuilt 1922 A memorial to those who served and fell in the Great War 1914-18".

The left (west) side of the church has 3 tall round-headed windows and a moulded cast-iron gutter with lion masks. At the rear 2 pointed arch windows with Y-tracery on first floor and 12-pane sash to right of doorway below. Including iron railings in front on dwarf stone wall, with arrow heads to shafts and small standards with finials.

Interior: The gallery at the south end may be original; it has a panelled front and is supported on slender cast-iron and wooden columns. Plain plastered ceiling and wall, the north end has a moulded plaster 3-bay arcade the larger central arch behind a panelled and pilastered wooden rostrum. Organ in the north east corner and late C19 benches with round-headed ends.
