Search For The Church

On viewing an historic street scene, the presence of a church building is usually one of the easiest ways to make a visual comparison between past and present. Surprisingly that’s not the case with this archive image from 1910, in which you’ll notice the church has now disappeared!

Opened in 1901, this Wesleyan Church was very dear to the community, but sadly it suffered from structural defects and a declining congregation, all of which forced its demolition in 1961.
