Back River Methodist

Built in 1837 to cater to the large community living at Back River .

The most striking feature of this church is the windows which really are not windows at all but what is known as “Blind Gothic” and are usually seen in churches in England  

Many names seen on headstones in the cemetery such as Triffitt, Clark, Maddox and Rayner are still known in the district today
