The Heath Church
The Heath Church
This church, a daughter church of St Marys Reigate (see TQ2550 : St Mary's Church, Reigate), was built in 1907, and therefore celebrated its centenary in 2007. It is a well preserved example of an "iron church" (or colloquially "tin tabernacle").
Tin tabernacles
"Tin tabernacles" (or more properly "iron churches") were produced in large numbers from the mid 19th Century into the early 20th Century. They were built with a timber frame, clad with galvanised and corrugated iron, and lined with tongue and groove boarding. Prepared as prefabricated kits, they were also exported to many countries overseas.
