The Churches of Britain and Ireland
The Abbey, properly the Priory and Parish Church of St. Andrew. NY 935 641. From an old postcard in Steve Bulman's Collection. A modern view, interior view, and the Night Stairs, all © Alan Craxford. Link. This page explains about the Night Stairs. Another view, © Carole Sage (1969). Much remains of the Priory Gate on Gilesgate. © Steve Bulman (2010). Link. Grade I listed.
The former Hebbron Memorial Chapel (1862) on St. Mary's Chare, now in commercial use. It was built as Primitive Methodist; evidently "Primitive" was later erased. Circa NY 935 640. © Steve Bulman (2012).
The former Primitive Methodist Chapel on Hallstile Bank (once known as Bull Bank). What appears to have been a date-stone sits below the central upper window, but it is completely defaced. A plaque records "1830 .... 30 years on Bull Bank"; whether this means 30 years from 1830, or that 1830 was the end of their presence here, is unclear. The building seems to have long been converted into two houses. Circa NY 937 641. Both © Steve Bulman (2013).

Salvation Army on Market Street is an unusually handsome S. A. building, dating from 1883. There is a stone above the right-hand window which reads "blood and fire", an S. A. motto, so perhaps this building was built by the movement. © Steve Bulman (2010). Link.
