Methodist Church on George Street. SJ 773 946. © Mike Berrell (2014). Interior view, © Mike Berrell (2015). There were two earlier Methodist Chapels, also on George Street, the earliest shown here, and its successor here. My appreciation to the Church for allowing Mike to take these photos of pictures of the chapels. Photograph © Mike Berrell (2015).
St. Clement on Manor Avenue was consecrated in 1868. SJ 768 943. This old (1874) photo is from "A History of the Parish of Flixton", by David Herbert Langton (1898), courtesy of Mike Berrell. A modern photo shows a very different church, which the present incumbent explains as being a result of further building work having taken place after the early photo, and the modern photo being taken from a different angle. © Mike Berrell. Two interior views - 1, 2, both © Mike Berrell (2014). Link. Grade II listed.
