1884 – Church, Wrexham, Wales

Architect: E.M. Bruce Vaughn


Design for new church in Southsea, Wrexham, published in The Building News, October 24th 1884. In 1926, it was decided to demolish this building, and replace it with a larger building on the same site. It is said that this was done by building the new church around the old one – which was then demolished! Less than sixty years later, this second church had become unsafe because of land subsidence caused by excessive mining.
