Extant Building

Scotch Church in Howard Street was constructed in 1811. Shown on Woods 1827 map. Designed by John Dobson in the Greek revival style. Described by Faulkner and Greg as "rather crude" and a "severe neoclassical building". The building had a three bay faƧade with Doric pilasters. Greek temple effect, with steps up to the front. The church had no pediment, its entablature was surmounted by a tall attic storey. The mouldings above the windows on ground floor were supported by brackets embellished with a "curious motif of animal skulls" (bull's heads). Later became Salvation Army Citadel. The Scotch Church movement was established in 1759 by the Rev. Joseph Wilkinson. By deed the Minister had to be a licentiate of the Church of Scotland. LISTED GRADE 2
