    rising air ducts to induce air from the perimeter extract ducts Circular grilles in the ceiling sited along the centre line of the Chapel allowed the warm air rising from the congregation and from the gas lighting to pass through and be collected by the circular hoods in the roof space sited above the ceiling grilles This extracted air is then accelerated by the effect of a venturi whereby the ducting is decreased in cross sectional area to increase the velocity of the air This air increased velocity was then used to induce and draw in extracted air from the perimeter ducting in the roof space The perimeter ducting is continuous and its air inlet is connected to the decorative mouldings at the cornice edge of the building Fixed lengths of rectangular perimeter ducting in the roof space are each connected by circular ducting which then connects into the main riser ducts above the venturi reductions The vitiated air then escapes to atmosphere through circular turret vents sited along the ridge line of the roof During large congregations the high internal height of the Chapel helps to increase the stack effect within the building and thus increase the quantity of air drawn into the roof ducting To compensate for and balance the amount of extracted air fresh air inlet boxes each complete with a flap control damper are installed in the majority of the window recesses at both floor levels Additional boxes are fitted flush within the thickness of the external walls where access is restricted These air inlet boxes are similar to the Tobin Tubes as illustrated in the Walter Jones book Heating by Hot Water third edition published in 1904 The ventilation system was effectively made redundant during the 1960 s when the circular ceiling grilles were frosted
