Hamja Mosque, on Mowbray Street and Katherine Street (under construction, February 2007). SD 931 988. © Mike Berrell. Mike has advised (2016) that this is now known as Masjid Hamza (Deobandi).
Independent Methodist Church (1877) on Wellington Road. Interior view. The chapel is almost unused now, because access is via a steep flight of stairs; the congregation now normally meets in a room on the ground floor. SJ 938 994. Both © Mike Berrell. This photo, taken by Mike Berrell of a photo on display in the church, and reproduced by kind permission of the church, shows the congregation gathered outside on the pavement. The caption (not included here) is quite difficult to read, but judging by the clothes, the photo must date from Victorian times.
