Methodist Church, Great Yarmouth
Newtown is Great Yarmouth's polite northern suburb, which grew up as the town increased in popularity as a seaside resort in the second half of the 19th Century. It has a feel of a place apart, not least as a result of its separation from the town centre by Yarmouth's vast cemetery, and from a distance you might think that this grand building was its town hall. In fact, it is Newtown Methodist Church. The building was a fruit of a split in the Methodist movement in the 1870s when large numbers went off to form the Wesleyan Reform Movement. Newtown Methodist Church was built as a Wesleyan Reform church.
