A view towards George Street from Broad Street showing one side of "The Arts Theatre". Above the second ground floor window is a sandstone plaque whose faded inscription reads: "This building was erected by voluntary contributions for the instruction of poor children MD C C CXIX". Given that the Arts Theatre, whose main entrance is on George Street, was originally a Baptist Chapel, perhaps the section behind the chapel was either supported by the local Baptist congregation or was built on land donated (or sold) by them, for this purpose?
