Methodist Church and Sunday School, 126-132 Linthorpe Road

  • Description

    Originally opening in 1892 as a Primitive Methodist Church to seat 300, it stands as Middlesbrough’s only surviving Victorian nonconformist chapel. The church was extended in 1910 (left of photograph), to create a Sunday School. The Church building is in a Romanesque style, of dark red brick with stone dressings and a pitched slate roof. Other architectural features include semi-circular heads to tall windows, bullseye windows and an ornate projecting head to the front elevation window gable. The main entrance is recessed deep into the front elevation. Brick detailing around the windows and roof eaves add interest. The Sunday School is linked to the Church at the rear but they stand as two separate buildings in the streetscene. The Sunday School is of bright red engineering brick with stone banding and a slate roof. It is a notable addition to this part of Linthorpe Road.
