Moravian Chapel and Minister's
House, Chapel Fold
SE 1525 68/793


The Chapel was completed in 1755. It is a simple 2 storey rectangular structure
with rendered sandstone front. Two tall round headed windows to centre and similar
but shorter windows at first floor level above flanking round header doorways. All
have small impost blocks and keystones to arches. Stone slate roof with corbel
brackets to eaves, saddlestones and prominent shaped kneelers. Louvred stone bellcot
on ridge with pyramid roof and ball finial. The minister's house was added, in
part under the same roof, circa 1782-1800. The sandstone "brickwork" remains
exposed with flush quoins. Three ashlar framed sash windows and squared jamb
doorway with cornice; one bay with C19 extension to west. The rear elevation
of the Chapel has similar fenestration to the front with addition of central,
2 storey, sandstone "brick" projecting bay built to contain organ loft with round
headed window facing north. The minister's house, on this side, has 2 light square
mullion windows. The interior of the Chapel retains panelled galleries on both
sides supported on wooden Doric columns. The pews are late C19. Early to mid C19
organ case with iron finials recessed in segmental niche with Doric entablature
impost mouldings and anthemion patterned keystone. Late C18 pulpit panelled and
swept in to base. John Wesley preached here in 1759.
