Does anyone out there remember the name and denomination of the small church, long since demolished, which stood on Aldermans Green Road on the same side as the Bird in Hand pub and near the corner of Jackers Road. I went to Sunday School there for some years in the late forties and early fifties. The church itself was very plain outside and extremely beautiful inside, with plain white walls and very light oak pews, altar rail, pulpit, and organ casing. The Sunday School was held in a wooden hut with a stage at one end which was used for pantos. The only source of heat was a pot-bellied cast-iron stove that was fed with huge quantities of coke (the black, crunchy sort). The whole set-up would have taken decades off the life expectancy of a modern-day Health and Safety expert - yet, amazingly, we survived!

The cottage is about 150 years old, once belonging to the Earl of Craven estates, who still own the mineral rights. It was once two two-bedroom cottages with a shared outside toilet, now following modernisation it is a three-bed, bathroom, kitchen, living room, lounge and downstairs cloakroom with shower. The renovation was completed about 1995 and is now a family home complete with a well in back garden. The Olde Crown is on the corner of Lentons Lane and Parrotts Grove

Hello, I've been searching the internet trying to learn the history of our home, no.278, but don't seem to be able to find any. Does anyone now anything about it?? Apparently it used to have a name?? The house is opposite Aldermans Green post office. Many thanks Craig Thumbs up

Hi Craig, and welcome to our forum. Would the deeds of your house have any record of previous house-name, or would maybe the Land Registry be able to help?

Planning Records have a couple of entries for the address in pdf format. The house was much smaller when originally built in 1914 (or 1941, the dates are contradictory). It was massively extended in 1977 and again in 1979. It is locally listed as a 'building of architectural merit'. Can't find any record of a name.

Greenman, I'm fairly new to this forum, and still ploughing through it. Yes I knew where the church stood, only went in it couple of times, carry chairs or something. The hut at the back was also the scout hut, I was a member for a number of years, wide ash path led round to the rear, next was the bungalows where the Pearsons lived, hear they have the haulage business near Lentons Lane now. Yes we scouts did a few shows in that hut (late thirties). It was right opposite to the slough entrance road. Do you remember Pearson the barber on the other side few houses down. (ok minds turning) A few houses, then the Garage on the corner of Jackers Road where we took the wireless accumulators. Church not C of E, that's the nearest I can get. Didyou live near the Miners or the Bird in Hand?

Hi Greenman and Kaga,
No knowledge on the subject matter whatsoever, but was looking for anything that mentioned the Church and saw this;
ALDERMAN'S GREEN ROAD, FOLESHILL Brook Primitive Methodist Chapel was built in 1849 on the east side of the main road; it seated 184. An evening service in 1851 was attended by 90 persons. (fn. 92) A replacing chapel was completed about 1928 (fn. 93) and the old building, a small rectangular structure of red brick, was used as a workshop. The new chapel was built about 150 yards further south, having sittings for 160 and two additional rooms. (fn. 94) It was closed about 1950 when the congregation joined that of the former Wesleyan chapel on the opposite side of the road (see below). (fn. 95) ALDERMAN'S GREEN ROAD, FOLESHILL Wesleyan chapel was built in 1840. There was an attendance of 100 at an afternoon service in 1851. (fn. 96) In 1940 it seated 150, and had a school hall and three other rooms attached to it. (fn. 97) It stands on the west side of the main road and is a rectangular brick building with round-headed windows, and a stucco front, adjoining a row of cottages of similar date. About 1950 the congregation was joined by that from the former Brook Primitive Methodist Chapel on the opposite side of the road (see above). The chapel was subsequently known as Alderman's Green Methodist Church. (fn. 98) SOURCE: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=16042
Is this the church you were talking about? Regards, Luke. (or could have been ALDERMAN'S GREEN ROAD, FOLESHILL - Ebenezer Free Methodist Chapel (found on same link))

Hi Kaga. I lived between The Bird in Hand and Cooperative Street. Most Saturday nights in the summer, I was taken to the Miner's by my aunt and uncle and and then across the road to Hilda Shirley's for fish and chips to eat on the way home. The place on the corner of Jackers Road where we took the accumulators was called Turrells, I think.

Thanks for that Garlands. It was the Wesleyan Chapel I remembered. My parents weren't religious but they sent me to Sunday School for several years. The religion didn't stick but I gained a great sense of community and the Bible Study lessons, using the wonderful King James Bible stood me in good stead many years later when I began to study Shakespeare and his contemporaries.

Greenman, is it a coincidence that the Turrells ran a garage at the bottom of Leicester Causeway, or is this part of the same family? Edited by member, 2nd Dec 2014 10:23 pm

I don't know Norm, but the place on Aldermans Green Road, as I remember it, was a hardware shop but with a pump outside for paraffin. Edited by member, 3rd Dec 2014 10:19 pm

Greenman, there was the chapel next to the Co-op. Think I had a relation in one of those houses next to your chapel - hey I remember now, had to drop a book in to the Co-op Monday-Tuesday then they delivered on Thursday by horse and van. Hilda Harris, went to school with her brother. Now the old Miners used to have pictures of the slough along with football players on the walls, suppose everythings changed now. On the right of Co-op street a guy used to rear turkeys, do you remember him. NormK, can you remind me, Leicester Causeway

Yes Kaga. Leicester Causeway is situated just over Priestleys Bridge on the right heading towards town. The garage I referred to was at the other end. Thumbs up Edited by member, 3rd Dec 2014 1:49 pm
