Further information provided by John Webb:
These 'Tin Tabernacle' churches, as they were frequently nicknamed, were always constructed of corrugated iron on a timber framework. They were often made 'off the peg' by a number of companies who then sent out the component parts, or sometimes partly prefabricated, for erection on site. Few now remain in church use, and many are preserved in various open-air museums or similar sites. They predominately come from the mid-Victorian period and were used where industrial villages and towns sprung up remote from the already established town/village churches.
