The Congregational church and Salt family mausoleum was built 1858-59, by Lockwood and Mawson for Titus Salt. It is built in an Italianate style with a 6-bay aisle-less nave and a semi-circular portico at the west end, and a mausoleum to the south west. It is a grade 1 Listed Building.
Inside, the nave bays are marked by dark blue scagliola pilasters, which support a dentilled and modillioned entablature, and a richly decorated, segmental, coffered ceiling.

Tutors and students from the Samuel Jackman Prescod Institute of Technology, with a little support from Mark, copied adjacent windows to begin conservation work on this building.
