Illogan Highway Methodist Church and Church Hall
Illogan Highway Methodist Church and Church Hall
These are the second and third Methodist chapels on this site; the first, dating from 1809, is a very modest single-storey building at the rear that is now the Sunday School. The further building dates from 1839 and is now a "meeting hall and Sunday School". See LinkExternal link . The nearer building, of the early C20, has a "two-storey facade in free Gothic (or Arts and Crafts) style, in a form probably derived from that of its 1839 predecessor ..." LinkExternal link. Thomas Merritt, who composed several Christmas carols, including "Hark the Glad Sound! The Saviour Comes" and "Lo! He Comes, an Infant Stranger" was organist here from 1889 until his death in 1908.

All three buildings are built of killas, or metamorphic rock.
