At the bottom of Burngreave Road, on the right hand side you will see the prominent stone building of the Burngreave Vestry Hall. It was built in a Jacobean architectural style and is now a Grade II listed building. There are many small sculptural details on the exterior of the building. The arch over the front porch has a stone lintel with a shield on top of it and the words 'Vestry Offices' carved below this. There is also a semicircular stone tablet at the top of the front wall with the date 1864 carved into it.
