Westernmost; for Non-Conformists

-

- II

Cemetery chapel of 1863: Local stone ashlar with Ham stone dressings, Welsh
slated roofs. One of twin (handed) chapels: Greek cross plan with added colonade
porch to East: South transept in form of an angled chevet; Romanesque style with
some polychromy. Corner buttresses porch has semi-circular headed entrance
archway with small side shafts; the returns have a semi-circular arched opening
split by a column and heavily cusped tracery. South elevation has cusped lancet
to 'nave' bay, then plate tracery in semi-circular arches to the chevet, and
further cusped lancet to 'chancel' bay; corner buttresses with Quasi-dentilled
eaves course . Triple window to West end, the centre light being divided
centrally, with decorated capitals/imposts. North elevation similar to South,
but with the chevet replaced by flat table with pair of doors. Small circular
window in East wall over porch. Central over crossing a short gabled turret with
square fine-line termination. Interior not inspected. Although architecturally
adequate on its own, its value is enhanced by the 'twin' opposite.
