Description:This photograph was taken by Edwin Harrison, a prominent local photographer at the time, and was taken before the 1873 alterations to the church.

A church has stood on the site of St. Giles' for hundreds of years, though the appearance of the church has changed greatly. In 1721 the first of two major rebuilds was completed in the Georgian style by William Smith, which is the church pictured here.

This rebuilding of the church was caused by a fire started deliberately by members of the St. Giles' congregation at the nearby non-conformist meeting house. The fire spread and resulted in causing serious damage to both buildings.
