Full description

We understand that the building was originally constructed in 1873 as the Milton Congregational Church, a stone building in the Gothic Revival style, but has since been subjected to various extensions and alterations. Nevertheless, it is a large imposing building in the street scene. A decorative gable end incorporating a high-level rose window faces Clarence Place. The roofs are mainly steeply pitched and with slate coverings.

Internally, the majority to the ground floor is given over to a large sanctuary with some smaller rooms adjoining; there is a hall to the rear. The sanctuary is principally full height and extends into the roof pitch which has feature timber trusses with metal ties. There is a balcony to the rear of the sanctuary. At the same upper level are some smaller rooms to the flank elevations. There is also a lower ground floor, beneath the north part of the property. Due to changes in the land, it is at a similar level to William Street. It provides a further hall and ancillary accommodation, previously used as kitchens and stores.

Regrettably, the building has been subjected to some vandalism, particularly internally.

The plot is rectangular. There is a small forecourt to Clarence Place but otherwise limited external space. There is no on-site car parking.

Victorian Church, hall and meetings rooms in conservation area.
Potential for conversion to other uses - subject to planning permission. Existing restriction against use within Class D1 including as a place of worship.
