NON-CHRISTIAN RELIGIONS.

The Guru Nanak Sikh temple in West Bromwich Street was registered in 1964 and rebuilt on the same site in 1971-2. Designed by G. Wright of Bloxwich, the new temple is of brick with concrete dressings. It consists of two floors, with a kitchen and hall on the ground-floor and the sanctuary on the first-floor approached by separate staircases for men and women. While the temple was being rebuilt the Sikhs met in the Congregational church in Wednesbury Road. (fn. 45) The Nanak Sar temple in the former Primitive Methodist chapel in Darlaston Road was registered in 1965. (fn. 46)
