Stithians United Methodist Free Church

The Gate-piers, walls, gates and -railings in front of the former Stithians United Methodist Free Church and current Stithians Methodist chapel are Grade II Listed.  You can see a picture and read the description here.

The chapel, also known in 1988 as Penmennor  Methodist Church, carries a Datestone for 1865 and is built of dressed granite and granite rubble. Iron railing and gates. Square-on-plan piers. There are 2 entrances: a wide carriage entrance on the left set back with concave quadrant-on-plan flanking walls and a wide gateway aligned with the doorway of the chapel. The latter gateway is flanked by low ashlar plinths and there are terminal piers at either end. C20 railings are possibly copied from original railings. Principal piers have monolithic shafts and moulded caps with squat pyramidal heads. Railings have fleur-de-lys finials. On the right, the rubble walls have granite copings.
