Upper Chapel (1847-48). Now a Unitarian church. Norfolk Street, Sheffield. John Frith extensively remodelled the original building of 1700, reversing its orientation, raising its walls, and adding to the east end “to create a vestibule behind the handsome new pedimented stone front with its ionic porch. The five arched upper windows are flanked by Corinthian pilasters in the style of Barry's [London] Traveller's Club” (Harman and Minnis, 105).
