Comments about this page

  • Howard Richter comments:-

    If you go here you can see that the left-hand (western) part of the building in the Newcastle Archives picture has been replaced, recently to judge from appearances, by housing.

    You can also see what is only hinted at in your picture, namely that a single-storey church, St. Paul, has been put up in the forecourt (about 50 years ago, I believe).

    What you can also see in Streetview is the datestone in the gable over the door of the older chapel – ‘1875’. This is the gable under the word ‘Chapel’ in the picture

    The 1851 chapel, no longer standing, was a little way to the east, seen here on the OS 25″ at approximately NZ 3988 4692. The map may have been printed in 1885, but the surveying was done in the late 1850s.
