The former St. Cuthbert. The grade II listing dates it to 1848, with the north aisle added in 1875. At the time of Bill's photo it was derelict, and was due to be demolished, but there was discussion about rebuilding it at the Beamish Open Air Museum. NZ 2478 6234. Bill Henderson. Howard Richter has confirmed that the move to Beamish never happened, and it has been converted to secular use. An Estate Agents notice is available here. A video of its cafe.
Synagogue. Bill Henderson.
U.R.C. Bill Henderson.
Whitehall Road Methodist Church, on Whitehall Road and Coatsworth Road. Originally New Connexion, opening in 1896, it was later United Methodist. The New Connexion congregation had previously been in Bethesda New Connexion Chapel on Melbourne Street, Barn Close, which is probably the one noted here as having been built in 1836. The chapel was demolished in 1964, and even the street no longer exists, but it stood at NZ 2538 6333. In this 2019 Streetview, the site of the chapel is handily marked by the yellow box on the road, its width was almost exactly the same as the length of the box, and the width of the entire road was about the same as the length of the chapel. A photo of it is available here. It is significant in the history of William Booth, later to found the Salvation Army, who had his first permanent post here. NZ 2533 6207. Bill Henderson. Link.
