Alphabet Friday - Albion Church


Following the example of some other photo blogs, I am starting a series of photos following the alphabet. This being the first, where better to start than "A"?

"A" is for "Albion Church" - the largest congregational church in the North of England. Built with a spire to rival the height of the nearby Parish Church. This photo shows the church looking from the Memorial Gardens.

    I think the the church was built a foot taller than the Parish church. It was said to make it the tallest building thus upsetting the C of E!

  12. The second spire is for ventalation as is at Westminster Hall in London. This is the largest non-conformist church, outside London, in the UK, not just northern england.
