Halifax, Rhodes Street Wesleyan Methodist chapel

Percy Road, Kilburn

Steven Wild informs us that the Chapel and School were designed by J. P. Pritchett.
The corner stone was laid on 7th March 1866. The Chapel opened on 31st May 1867 and could accommodate 800 worshippers. This fine building had a spire.
The church had a noted organ. Arthur Collingwood was organist here.
Closed in 1965. It was demolished two years later.

The question is which J.P. Pritchett designed the building: the father (1789-1869) of York, or son (1830-1911) of Darlington?
