This is a community asset as well as religious.  The provision of W.C. and kitchenette must be supported and we would presume the architect, who no doubt specialises in this type of work, concluded this is to be the best option.  Although this is an ‘add on’ it does not alter the overall structure of the Grade 1 listed building.
