31.1.67
II*

Church. 1819, built by a Mr Bennison. White brick with stone dressings,
slate roof. 2 storeys, 3 bays, flanked by lower 2-storey single-bay wings
(containing the stairs). Plinth, sill band. 3 round-headed sashes with
radial glazing and glazing bars in round-arched recesses. First-floor band,
3 similar sashes in similar recesses to first floor. Moulded cornice to low
pediment bearing circular tablet with inscription:

1819

Each flanking wing has to the ground floor a folding door of 6 raised and
fielded panels under fanlight with radial glazing and to the first floor a
round-headed sash with radial glazing and glazing bars in recessed rounded
surrounds. Ramped coped parapets. Interior: the interior survives
completely unaltered save for the insertion of an organ (1896, by Foster and
Andrews of Hull). There is a balcony with raised and fielded panelling
around 3 sides carried on slender cast-iron columns which are spaced so as
to seem equidistant when viewed from the Minister's desk. The church is
fully provided with box-pews in raised and fielded panelling. The flanking
wings contain cut-string stairs with stick balusters and ramped and wreathed
handrails: there is a similar, short, stair to the pulpit. This is the best
preserved early C19 chapel in North Humberside. Franks, Rev S W and Smith,

Meeting). Pevsner N, Yorkshire: York and the East Riding, p 217, 1972.
