Notes about this historic site

1 A little N of the Parish Church is a paved alleyway leading to the Victorian chapel, built in 1867 to replace the old Calvinist ‘Meeting’ erected on this site in 1778. It was situated at the NE corner of a nearly square graveyard and was a simple rectangular building on a N/S axis. This was demolished in 1867 and replaced by a larger L-shaped building extending along the N and E sides of the yard. The church became moribund in the mid 1970s and was sold.
2 It is now used as a furniture store.
