Methodist Church, Renwick

The Methodist Church in Renwick is built in red sandstone; it has a small central spire, and a distinctive battlemented porch and clock tower. The original Wesleyan Methodist chapel in Renwick was built 1818[1]. The current church was largely rebuilt in 1904-1905, at a cost of about £800, on the site of the old chapel.[2] An early 20th century extension to the building has a plank door with a lintel inscribed "SCHOOL".[3] The church is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
