Gornal. The foundation stone of a new Baptist Chapel has been laid at Gornal. The new site is in Jew's lane, midway between Upper and Lower Gornal. The edifice will be 81 ft. long and 36 ft. wide, with galleries all round and open seats. It will be in the Gothic style, built with brick, having stone dressings. The cost exclusive of the acre of ground in the middle of which it is erected, will be about 1,400. Messrs. Bidlake & Fleeming, architects, Wolverhampton, prepared the plans, and in January last a contract was given to Mr. Nelson, of Dudley.

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.
