II

Congregational chapel, now United Reformed Church. 1866-68 by F. Drake
of Leicester in a Ruskinian Venetian Gothic style. Red brick with
ashlar front and hipped slate roof. 2-storey front with attic in
gable-pediment; balustraded parapet to cornice of outer bays. Full
height central projection with rusticated quoins, capped by
gable-pediment. 3-part window below broken up into 6 lights by arcade
with capitals of lilies, oak grapes etc. Ground floor with central
arched doorway flanked by a pair of lower keyed-arch doorways. Columns
flanking, supporting entablature and central open pediment; capitals of
columns flanking central door based on lily of the valley, the outer
pair on ferns. Side bays have rusticated quoins and tall double-height
round arched windows divided by a single pier vertically and
horizontally by a traceried band. Sides with 5 major bays with windows
in tall round-arched recesses and 4 slightly less tall and much
narrower recessed panels between. The major interest of this building
resides in the Ruskinian influence visible in both the style and
particularly in the naturalistic foliage capitals of the columns.
