The Churches of Britain and Ireland
The long-demolished Christ Church (Unitarian) on Peas Hill Road. According to this link, the church was built in 1863-4, closed in 1932. © unitarian.co.uk. 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.

St. Nicholas. Two further views - 1, 2. Currently (2011) closed, and undergoing re-ordering, the congregation is meeting in the nearby Congregational Church (see above). St. Nicholas is also home to Nottingham's Chinese Christian community. The church is of ancient foundation (some argue pre-Conquest), but the present building dates from the 1670's, replacing one destroyed in the English Civil War. SK 571 396. All © Howard Richter (2011). Link1. Link2. Grade II* listed - link.
