Methodist Church (with spire) stands in front of the earlier church (immediately to the left in the photo). NZ 663 215. © Steve Bulman. The earlier Wesleyan Church is seen here, © Colin Waters Collection (2011). Another view, © Stuart Leadley (2011). Stuart advises that the earlier church dates from 1865, by W. Peachey. Following the building of the new church (1905, by Garside and Pennington) it became the Sunday School.
Our Lady of Lourdes (R.C., 1928). on Milton Street. NZ 660 214. © Stuart Leadley (2011). The porch and shrine, both © Martin Richter (2014). It shows for the first time on the OS map of the 1928 edition, so is probably post-WW1. Link.
Saltburn's Community Theatre was previously a Methodist Church. Although I'd been unable to find any reference to this building's history, the dogged efforts of Janet Gimber unearthed its previous use. © Steve Bulman. Colin Waters has provided an opening date of 1910, the foundation stone having been laid the previous year. Originally Primitive Methodist, it remained in use until 1969, when the congregation merged with the Wesleyans (above). Two further views - 1, 2, both © Stuart Leadley (2011). Stuart advises that the architect was George Baines.
