St. Mungo's Parish Hall is a good example of the quality of work by this well-known provincial practice and is an important part of the streetscape at Bedford Place. Although the building has recently been converted and extended for residential use, this has not had a significant detrimental effect on the building's character and the front elevation is intact, including the fine doorpiece. It has been suggested (Swan, 1992) that this may be part of a series of buildings designed by John Gray in Kerr's office.
Conversion to housing and extension by MBM architects, 1997.
