Groves grooves 3: Grade II

According to this site, Groves Chapel on Clarence Street, no longer in use as a place of worship, now houses NHS offices. The ground floor windows are boarded up and painted. Folk who know their architectural terms will enjoy this extract from the aforementioned site:

pediment has oculus in tympanum, acroterion
and antefixae.
