For this church:
St Michael and All Angels
St Michael and All Angels’ church on the corner of Foxhill Road and Hill View, used to serve the Thorneywood area. It was built as a mission church some time before 1914, when it first appears on an OS map. The next map at this scale is from 1953 and shows a different orientation and a different plan. This same building in 1961 is marked as Foxhill Gospel Hall (Plymouth Brethren). The site is now ‘Foxhill Evangelical Church’.
St Michael and All Angels’ was apparently the temporary home of the old Saxondale font before it was moved to St Cyprian’s, Sneinton, and it is known that the altar and font of St Michael and All Angels’ were moved to St James’, Porchester in 1933.
No picture of this church is known. The image on this page is a section of a stained-glass window (actually in Ramsgate Church) depicting the Victorian architect Augustus Pugin.
