Exterior

A Tudor-Gothic single-storey former church hall of snecked rock-faced stone with paler freestone dressings, and a steep slate roof behind coped gables. The 6-bay front has stepped buttresses. In the narrower L-hand bay is a narrow gabled with a small window in the gable end and steps up to the boarded door in the R-hand return wall. Windows are 2-light and 3-light, with stone mullions. The R-hand bay is blind. The R (S) gable end has 3 stepped lancets under a freestone relieving arch with impost band. To its R is a Gothic doorway. To its L is an added gabled porch with boarded door in the S gable end. To the rear, facing the churchyard, the hall is built into slope and is lit by five large gabled dormer windows.

Facing Steeple Lane is a rubble-stone forecourt wall with freestone jambs to the entrances, freestone coping and iron railings.

The hall has an open timber roof (ceiled at collar level) with decorative curved braces to the trusses.
