Rear of the Methodist Church
Rear of the Methodist Church
In the foreground are the sheds and yard of Alec Day's butcher shop. The road in front of them is the former Roman Road 'King Street', from Water Newton to Ancaster.

The noble building behind is the nave of the Methodist church, which fronts onto Abbey Road.

Terry Pratchett once wrote of the opera house in Ankh Morpork that it was 'a plain box with the architecture stuck on afterwards', and there is a whiff of this with these Victorian Chapels. This one has an impressive stucco frontage in quite a different style. But the magnificent windows lift the construction out of the 'plain box' category. These splendid windows light a currently inaccessible upper floor. The church is fundraising to radically alter the interior to move the worship onto this upper floor.
