St Leonards on Sea Congregational Church

From Historical Hastings Wiki


To Robert Elleray, this is "one of the finest Nonconformist buildings in Sussex", but it lost its tall copper spire in the Great Storm of 1987 and was finally closed in 2008 after six years of disuse. The firm of Habershon and Brock designed it in 1863 for its Congregationalist founder James Griffin. The sandstone for it was quarried at Ore.
