Jesmond, Clayton Road Wesleyan Methodist Church

My great great uncle John Robb was the job architect for the Clayton Road Wesleyan Methodist Church designed in 1881. The design was by the architect J.J. Lish of Grainger Street West, Newcastle. Sadly the church and hall was demolished in 1981, but we still have the handwritten specification of works and several architectural details.

  • I found this page whilst researching a painting I have, It shows the temporary chapel that was on the site. The painting is dated 1881 so the actual chapel though designed the same year would of been built at a later date. The temporary chapel was built from corrugated tin and included a spire. It was known as the “the little iron chapel”. Unknown how long the building stood for.

  • I wonder if the scribe of the comment above would be prepared to deposit the documents he refers to at the Newcastle Archives – or at least a copy of them? They would be of interest and use to future researchers.
