It later became Congregational and was enlarged and extensively altered in 1867 to designs by Reading architect William Ford Poulton (1820-1900) at a cost of about £4,000. 'Having seen the chapel before and subsequent to the alterations we are of opinion that the money might have been expended to much better advantage. ... The chapel is badly ventilated and we suppose the schools, which are underneath, are even worse off.'1 It closed in 1972. The Union Church Institute to the north was opened in 1902. Both were demolished in 1984 and replaced by bank and office premises.

Queen's Park In 1825 Brighton solicitor Thomas Attree acquired land north of Eastern Road—already known as Brighton Park—to build a residential park surrounded by detached villas, inspired by Regent's Park in London. He commissioned architect Charles Barry to design it. It was re-named after Queen Adelaide, consort of William IV, who patronised the German Spa opened in 1825 by Dr F A A Struve (whom God preserve) of Dresden at the south end of the park, which remained in operation until 1886 when it continued as a mineral water plant until 1960. On the site now stands the Royal Spa Nursery School (see Park Hill). At the north-west corner, now on Tower Road, stands the 'Pepper pot'. The park itself, without the houses but including the Spa and the Pepperbox, was bought by the Race Stand Trustees in 1890 for £13,500 and donated to the town—an act commemorated by an elaborate drinking fountain. The park is Grade II listed1. It was officially opened on 10 August 1892, as commemorated on the memorial drinking fountain, dating from 1893, which is Grade II listed2. The bowling green and pavilion date from 1909. The clock tower, dedicated on 24 June 1915, resulted from a £1,000 bequest by William Godley in 1912; it is Grade II listed3.
