All Souls at Akroyden. Opened about 1860, and designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott. According to Pevsner, Scott regarded it as his best work. Sadly, he used a soft local stone, which has weathered badly, and the building is now no longer used for services, as it's considered unsafe. A private trust looks after the building. The West door. The East window. SE 092 261. All Stan Walker. Another view, Stuart Leadley (2011). Link.

Northgate-end Chapel (Unitarian, 1872). 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.
