Saltburn on Wikipedia.

Emmanuel Church on Windsor Road. NZ 662 211. Steve Bulman. Another view, Colin Waters Collection (2011), and another Stuart Leadley (2011), who advises that the church dates from 1869-1879 (J. P. Pritchett), with the tower added in 1898 (Clarke & Moscrop). The Grade II listing has conflicting information, with the church itself given as 1867-9, the tower (amongst other alterations) by William Pitts & Son of Leeds in 1898, and Clarke and Moscrop being responsible for the south porch in 1902. Link. News stories - vandalism, the clean-up, and a lottery grant for repairs.

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.
