This, and many other old illustrations 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.
This nightclub (Livingstones) is obviously a former church, probably Methodist or U.R.C. The date 1903 is over the door. © James Murray. Now called "Sin", Gerard Charmley advises that it was originally a Primitive Methodist Chapel. © Gerard Charmley (2011). Janet Gimber further advises that it was later known as Holywell Cross Methodist Church.
