St Chad's Church, Nunthorpe
| The Parish Church of St Chad on the Knavesmire stands on the northern side of Campleshon Road, midway between Lorne Street and Albermarle Road. South Bank Avenue Mission Room was opened in 1925-1926, and was consecrated as a chapel of ease on 9 October 1926. The building survives, although its use is unknown. It lies on the southern side of the avenue, midway between the junction with Brunswick Street and the alleys which meet Ovington Terrace.|
In 1928 the parish of St Chad was constituted as a Consolidated Chapelry out of the southern portion of St Mary's parish. The church was built in brick throughout and comprises a 'nave' which was originally intended to be the chancel. It consists of three bays and a Lady Chapel at the east end. The present structure represents only half the original plan. Many features were left uncompleted due to the high costs (over £10,000). The architect was W H Brierley of York. [The History Files]
