Former church, now used as public hall. 1863. Ham stone, cut, squared and boasted, ashlar dressings; Welsh slate roof to steep pitch between coped gables with finials. Single-storey, 6 bays x 3 bays. West gable front of 3 bays, with
pairs of corner buttresses and between-bay buttresses, all with finials, the inner pair having steeplets as finials: to bays 1 and 3 cusped lancet windows, and to bay 2 a 5-light Decorated style traceried window without label, rather thin tracery, above which is set a trefoil louvred vent; below is a pointed-arched doorway protected by open pitched-roof porch with C14 style outer archway with label. Side elevations have corner and bay buttresses; 2-light
simple-tranceried windows, that to western bay having its cill at springing level, with pitched roofed gabled dormers over each window. Single-bay gabled extension to east end, set lower, with further extension against east side of this, having a cusped lancet window and pointed arched doorway, with trefoil light over. Interior not accessible - in process of conversion into public hall in April 1986, apparently with very little alteration to interior. Presbytrian meetings began in South Petherton about 1663. A chapel was built on part of the present site in 1775. (VCH, Vol III, 1974).
