Introduction

Corbridge Market Place Chapel, Corbridge, Northumberland. Historic Building Recording (OASIS ID: thearcha2-298644)

A programme of building recording has been carried out for Mr Lee Stenhouse of Roxburgh Environmental Limited in advance of the refurbishment of a 19th century chapel facing onto the east side of the Market Place, Corbridge, Northumberland. The photographic record completed for this building consists of a total of 13 internal photographs the positions of which are keyed to a ground plan. Externally unaltered, Market Place Chapel appears as a good example of a mid-Victorian nonconformist building chapel although its heritage value is obviously enhanced by its setting in a historic village centre so close to significant medieval structures. As a chapel it is of very standard form, although the manner in which it is entered through the polygonal porch block is a little unusual. Inside, a considerable amount of the original interior survives although some benches have been removed and the dais/pulpit (seen as original in the list description) is probably secondary. Contemporary features such as the benches, dado, cornice and ceiling vents are attractive but very standard for the period, although it should be borne in mind that nonconformist buildings as a genre are a fast-diminishing resource, with a relatively small proportion having been awarded statutory protection. No further recording work is recommended on the standing buildings with respect to the Market Place chapel.
