Northgate-end Chapel (Unitarian, 1872). This may be the otherwise unidentified Chapel on the 25" O.S. map of 1907, at the junction of Northgate and Victoria, at SE 0938 2541. If this is correct, its site now lies beneath the trees seen in a Streetview from 2021. © unitarian.co.uk. This, and many other old engravings on this website, are reproduced from the downloadable books on the Unitarian Church Headquarters website here. The books are Pictures of Unitarian Churches by Emily Sharpe (1901) and the 1914 edition of Nonconformist Church Architecture by Ronald P. Jones M.A, (Oxon), and the images are reproduced by kind permission of James Barry of Unitarian Church Headquarters. My appreciation also to Mike Berrell for his efforts in this regard.

St. Mark (1915) on Whitegate Road, Siddal. SE 0984 2382. It replaced an earlier tin tabernacle of 1861 with the same dedication on the opposite side of Whitegate Road, a little further north, at SE 0975 2394.

Old St. Paul at King Cross (1847). Only the spire survives, a roof collapse resulting in demolition in 1930. A pre-demolition photo is available here. SE 0782 2431. © Stuart Mackrell. Its replacement stands nearby on West Royd Avenue, at SE 0799 2447. Link, which has a photo of the present church.
The former St. Thomas the Apostle (1860) on St. Thomas Street, Claremount. Its grade II listing dates it to 1857-61. David advises that it had a spire until 1967. Another view. SE 0981 2584.
