Portobello Spiritualist Church, just off Bath Street - it stands down an alley between two buildings. Another view. NT 3065 7400. All © Howard Richter (2013). Link.
St. James on Rosefield Place. NT 3036 7379. © Alastair Cameron. Link.
St. John (R.C.) on Brighton Place and Sandford Gardens. NT 3045 7376. From an old postcard in Steve Bulman's Collection. A modern view, © Alastair Cameron, and another, © Steve Bulman (2022). Link.
St. Mark (Scottish Episcopal, 1826). © Alastair Cameron. Link. Grade B listed - surely a mistake in the "Notes" where it says consecration of the church was in 1928. It must mean 1828 or thereabouts.
St. Philip. © Alastair Cameron.
U.R.C. on Marlborough Street. © Alastair Cameron.
Former church at 74 Portobello High Street, now a private residence. No maps available to me label it as a church, though the 25" O.S. map of 1914 has it as Hall. NT 3036 7406. © Alastair Cameron. The former church was converted into a Woolworth's store at some point - the ghost of its frontage is still visible, and a photo from when it was a Woolworths can be seen here.
