Roberts Street Baptist Church.
Baptists Church, Robert Street, Lower Gornal
Journal - The Builder, 16 May 1874
This is an imposing red-brick Baptist Church in Robert Street.
This reputably replaced an old chapel in North Street, Lower Gornal, reported 'as unused' in 1895.
It was earlier called The Providence Chapel.
The Church is still in regular use.
The road now called Roberts Street was originally still part of Jews Lane.
