7/125 Hale Chapel

G.V. II*

Presbyterian meeting house, now Unitarian chapel. 1723 with
vestry and alterations of c.1880. English garden wall bond
brick with slate roof. Classic early chapel plan although
the gallery was removed, the vestry and bellcote built and
the 2 side doors blocked in the late C19 when the gable end
door came into use. 4 bays with blocked doors in bays 1 and
4, timber mullion and transom leaded windows with segmental
brick arches, small buttresses and wall mounted sundial
dated 1812 in bay 2. Preacher's windows on north elevation
and windows to each gable, that to the west of C19.
Interior: good early C18 pulpit with sounding board and
splat baluster rail, box pews and oak fishbone king-post
trusses. C19 stained glass. The chapel is the earliest place
of worship in Hale or Halebarns and a fine example of an
early non-conformist chapel.
