Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The church of Saint Matthias was constructed between 1846 and 1848, designed by T.H. Wyatt and D. Brandon in a Romanesque style. In 1844 a district was assigned from part of the parish of Saint Matthew. In the 1850s the church was active in missionary work, holding classes and lectures and supporting a provident society and library. The parish was united with Saint Matthew (P72/MTW) in 1954 and the church was demolished.
