View of the interior from the gallery

The rather dull Victorian frontage added to the original meeting-house of 1783 and designed by Roger Mulholland gives no hint of the elegant elliptical interior that is so redolent of its period. The perfect shape is slightly reduced by the Victorian organ and ancillary rooms that were added behind the pulpit but despite that it is still an extremely attractive and impressive interior.
