  • I was baptised at the Brunswick Chapel and also went to the Sunday School, which was at the back of the church. My sister also attended Girl Guides there. It’s a shame that it had to be demolished, I think the weight of the snow on the roof caused damage. It had some beautiful stained glass windows inside.

  • I am looking up history of the Wesleyan Sunday School, Brunswick Mews. I would love to know about it as it is a recovery village for drug and alcohol. It has some beautiful features, I believe some were shops in Brunswick Mews. It still has beautiful coloured glass and lovely verandas. I would appreciate any information about its history. It is situated in William Street, Stockton on Tees and the back door leads into Brunswick Street.
