Thats a sad end to memories of a happy & welcoming chapel, went to many family events there. Bus from Holland Moor, Sunday tea at Auntie Annies & then to chapel.

Fred, I saw it when I came passed this week. Do you know why it's been demolished

I don't even know where this is but it makes me feel sad.

Irene, its a long time since I was there but I think it was along a road opposite Alexandra Park, if you know where that is or was in Pemberton

Thankyou, Helen. I just wish it could have been put to use instead of being demolished. I'm so glad you have happy memories of it. xx.

I came past on Monday and already the digger was excavating for the footings of the 2 semis to be built there

It's very sad to see a building like this demolished. So much character to it. At one time builders would snap them up for renovation but I suppose it's a bit too near the road for that and a bit squashed in on either side. What a shame.
