The former St Andrew's Mission

Earlier this week I showed you the northern remnant of John Street.

This view is looking across Clark Way from the exit from the M67 to the former St Andrews's Mission.

Now offices for C&L Systems, only the windows at the top betray its former use. St. Andrew’s Mission Church was built on John Street in 1875 as an offshoot from St Thomas the Apostle. It closed in the 1960s.

In the 1970s much of this area was demolished for the construction of the M67 and only a small remnant of John Street was left on the north side.

A little more information about St Andrew's can be found on Old Hyde

  1. I suppose St. Computer is taking over many places like this.

    PS My blog has moved to =""

  2. Once you start looking at the tell tale signs of a building's former use, it becomes obvious. I like this building.

  3. I wonder how they changed the interior...
