Upper Independent Chapel and Sunday School, High Street, Heckmondwike
Upper Independent Chapel and Sunday School, High Street, Heckmondwike
The building on the right was the Sunday School when it was built in 1856; it has an inscription in the pediment: 'Independent Day and Sabbath Schools. Anno Domini 1856'. It is now the chapel (United Reformed Church) and the newer building next door has been converted into flats. This was built in 1890 and is quite an amazing building, with a Classical front which the CofE of the time would perhaps have considered pagan architecture, and an exuberant tower (Italianate?) on each side.
