Temple Street Baptist Middleton by Edgar Wood

Collection Box with a drawing of Temple Street Baptist Church
Sorry to report that Temple Street Baptist is closing in October after opening its doors in 1889. This is an early building by the Arts and Crafts architect Edgar Wood which has more than a little of the Butterfield influence with its polychromatic facade and eclectic style. Wood said that he drew his inspiration from C13th English (thanks to John Archer).

I have spent the last two afternoons with Cynthia who kindly chaparoned me throughout the building.

Here's my delicious tag for Edgar Wood

Here's a tabblo I made from some of the photo's taken - click on the pic for bigger picture
