Description

Hermon Evangelical Church (Former)

Originally a 2-storey meeting place, this site is at the end of a terrace and the stone gable of the adjoining house is clearly seen. There are four bays plus the central Art deco window with keystone and the doorway. The pillars that terminate each end are pairs under one capital. There is a horizontal division between the two storeys. However, the position of the windows in relation to this division suggests that upper and lower windows were (or could be) designed as one. The side wall has six windows, three on each level. The ground level windowcills are barely above street level due to the sloping street. The upper panes of these windows are blocked. There is no access to the back (west) wall due to adjoining building. K. Nichols 09/08.
