A United Methodist Church once stood on Catherine Street. According to the entry on Genuki, it was founded in 1836, and closed before 1938, subsequently becoming a Salvation Army Citadel. I haven't been able to find a photo on-line, but the book "Looking at Whitehaven" by J. Brian Crossland, ISBN 0 9500003 1 0 (my edition published in 1971) has a photo at page 19, where it also says it was demolished in 1969. Google Streetview shows a modern Salvation Army building on the site. Circa NX 9759 1805. Link (for the current Salvation Army).

U.R.C. Malcolm Minshaw. Another view. Alan Blacklock.
