St Barnabas, Newton in Furness - Church of England
Newton Cross Rd,
Newton in Furness
In 1874, residents of the expanding iron-mining communities of Stank and Newton-in-Furness (within the parish of Dalton-in-Furness) had petitioned for the building of a school which could also be used for divine service.
In 1900 a new Mission Room was opened as a daughter church of Dalton-in-Furness and was named St Barnabas Church. It closed in 1977 and has since been converted into a private house, now virtually unrecognisable as a former place of worship.
Original registersNo separate baptismal or marriage registers. However the building had a font and a number of baptisms did take place at Newton, being thus marked in the main St Mary's, Dalton christening registers.
