A Strict & Particular Baptist Meeting House

And this is the picture, from the Internet, which triggered the above pages.
The following three factors should be noticed.

The building is called a
STRICT & PARTICULAR BAPTIST MEETING HOUSE.
Meeting House, Meeting Place or Meeting Room are the old names, the more modern term 'chapel' or the religious term 'church' do not appear on the Plaque, nor on the more recent Notice Board.

Notice, the First Day of the Week is called by its Christian name,
THE LORD'S DAY
and not by its pagan and secular name Sunday.

Also notice, the absence of symbolic crosses.
This was a normal practice among Baptists
until the 18th or 19th century.
