Bishop Street Methodist Church

Built in the classical Non-conformist manner in 1815 on land adjoining the livestock market: arched windows, two entrances to the horse-shoe gallery enclosed by a four-square structure.

The architect, the Revd William Jenkins, was also a Methodist minister. An extra bay was built to house the seventeenth-century organ case, traditionally ascribed to 'Father Smith' (organ builder to Charles II).

Most of the fittings are late 19th century: 'barley-sugar' communion rails, central pulpit, clock, pews and retractable wall benches.
