MEM22211 - Former Victoria Church Rooms, Parson's Street, Porlock (Building)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
The former Victoria Church Rooms probably commemorates the 1897 jubilee, and is an interesting mixture of neo-vernacular with front projecting round stack and Arts & Crafts detail with oriel window, eaves timber ornament and diamond pane leaded-light casement windows.  In 1897, at the time of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, the Victoria Rooms were opened, the top room used for church meetings and the bottom room as a Reading Room for the village men. This at a cost of £250.
