Full Description

Neo-Decorated Gothic Edwardian church, built of brick with sandstone tracery windows and stringcourses. It has a double pointed arch entrance with hoods, and a tower with tall lancet windows with tracery, a crenellated parapet and a limestone spire with ball finial. A Baptist church was established for the community in this area in Parcel Terrace in 1850. When the congregation grew it was relocated to the current position in 1860. The current church was built circa 1920. The church was ceased to be used by the Baptist congregation in 2004 following a fire. (1) Late 19th century Ordnance Survey maps show a Baptist Chapel on nearby Junction Street [SMR 32679]. Two adjoining buildings, probably houses, set back from the road, are shown on the site of the present Junction Baptist Church. (2, 3)
