The Churches of Britain and Ireland
Crook, County Durham
Previously listed as St. Andrew (U.R.C.), it is evidently not that church (for which see above) unless it has two buildings. Can you clarify what it is or was? © Alan Blacklock. Mike Berrell has advised (from here) that this building on Whitfield Street was originally St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, becoming U.R.C. following the union in 1972. A Local Ecumenical Partnership formed in or soon after 2004, and the Dawson Street church (above) was retained, with this church closing. A Google Earth image of May 2009 shows it boarded up at that time.
