St James (the building behind the sign) was built to replace an iron mission church (erected in 1876) in 1895. The architect was Matthew Morley who designed it in simple Early English style. Sadly I didn't capture the little tower which is behind the tree and has a little minaret.
When the church became redundant in the 1970s it was purchased by the present owners, the New Testament Baptist Church (American Evangelicals). The old building is used for Sunday School Teaching. New buildings (below) incorporate a larger hall where the church meets.
I found the building locked.
