While I have not had the opportunity to go inside the town’s Methodist Church I thought I would do a short entry on it based solely on its beautiful exterior.
The church was built between 1863 and 1867 to the design of W J Barre who also designed the Ulster Hall, the Albert Clock and the University Road Methodist Church (all in Belfast).
The Corinthian pillars, distinctive portico and vibrant pink and yellow colour certainly makes the building stand out here in Enniskillen, a town where the buildings are, almost without exception, rather plain.
Talking of plain, this building is the third church on this site – the original, built in 1793, being a particularly plain building with a thatched roof and an earthen floor.
Across the road (5 Darling Street) from the church is Headhunters Barber Shop & Railway Museum. I say this here because the Barber Shop/Museum is tucked away off the main road and is rather difficult to spot. For anyone with even the remotest interest in railways and especially railways in County Fermanagh it is a must see.
This blog entry is one of a group (loop) of entries based on many trips to Enniskillen. I suggest you continue with my next entry – Headhunters Barber Shop & Railway Museum – or to start the loop at the beginning go to my introductory entry – “Fare thee well Enniskillen, ………..”
