The Baptist church in Crowle dates from 1879.

Built of rendered brick with quoins and arched windows, the building is described by Pevsner as ‘remarkable conservative’.  Possibly it incorporates the earlier building of 1820.

Following closure in 2010, the church, together with its adjacent graveyard, has been for sale.
