Statement of Interest

Part of B-Group with St Andrew's Church and Churchyard. Listed for Group value with St Andrew's Church and Graveyard. Formerly the church was known as St Andrew's Church in Richardland Road, a street that has long since disappeared. Now the church and hall sit within their own grounds with gardens to the front and 2 burial grounds to the W side and rear. The hall was built around 50 years after the church at a time when extra rooms were important for meeting and teaching purposes.
