Church of St Hilda, Park Gate, Darlington - Darlington (UA)

Built (1887-88) in red brick in the Early English style by eminent C19 church architect JL Pearson. The stained glass and interior fittings were removed soon after closure in 1986. The church then suffered a fire before being acquired and re-used for worship by the Life and Light Mission. Roof coverings are reaching the end of their life and low level brickwork is in need of repair.
