TQ2904NE HOLLAND ROAD
579-1/19/57 (East side)
26/02/91 Baptist Chapel and attached
Schoolroom including forecourt wall

II

Baptist chapel, school room and forecourt wall. 1887 by John
Wills and paid for by the Congreve family. Transitional Gothic
style.
Coursed Purbeck rubble with freestone dressings; slate roof
with crested ridge tiles.
Chapel and hall form a continuous range along street. From
left a screen wall to passage separating chapel from house
(not included) contains a Caernarvon-arched doorway set in
pentised porch with quatrefoil window over with pilaster
buttress completed by a heavy broached pinnacle abutting
house. The chapel runs parallel to the street: a transept has
two tiers of triple lancets each of two lights flanked by a
single light; then four bays of double lancets in two tiers
each beneath a gablet and separated by buttresses. The main
entrance, a two centred arched doorway with polished Purbeck
shafts occupies the ground storey of a buttressed tower,
standing forward one bay, of four stages with false
battlements and machicolations and with a derived
Rhenish-style pyramidal roof. To the right again a further
screen with doorway links to the schoolroom, gable-end to the
street with triple lancet windows.
Interior: the chapel is open to the roof which has hammerbeams
and collars pierced with trefoils. There are galleries to
three sides carried on cast-iron columns with foliated
capitals. All the original pitch pine pews and desks survive,
as do the fine wrought-iron screens to the galleries and other
fixtures.
