Hi. I agree it does look like Park,  but searching for it on google the best match I can come up with is Park congregational chapel but this was built is 1864 or Zion Welsh Baptist chapel, upper park street, but this was built 1857. The marriage was in 1852, so itís all a bit confusing

Definitely park Congregational church which was the church I attended all the way through my childhood. Sadly it was destroyed in an arson attack a few years ago and it's in a very sorry state.

I have just realised that park church began in 1832 I remember this from when we celebrated an anniversary in the 90s the church did not begin in Murray street but started in a large building in park street. The building is now an Iceland and not many people know that the buildings original purpose was that of the church.

I have attached an image of the building.

It must have had a large congregation as it's a big old building!
