1921-5 in Cotswold Arts and Crafts style, possibly by John B Thorp, London firm of
architects who made a model for the building in 1921 which survives in the clerk's
office. Built of coursed and squared rubble stone and dressed stone quoins and
openings with a wide sweep of gabled stone tiled roof and tall end stone stacks.
I storey and attic with a SW front comprising a 3 bay half tile-hung gabled end to the
it (the caretaker's quarters) adjoining a 5 bay range whose 4th bay is a gabled
entrance with open timber framing in the apex. The roof of this main section has
4 hipped stone tiled dormers with 4 leaded lights to each and similar windows to the
ground floor. The W wall has 2 polygonal bay windows. Built onto the rear is a C20
cricket pavilion.
Inside the main congregation area has a wooden hammer-beam roof and there are several
Perp style chimney pieces with oak leaf spandrels in adjoining rooms. Set back from
the main road at the Swindon entrance to Shrivenham, the hall occupies an important
visual site in the villagescape.
