As mentioned Prof it closed as a chapel in 1951, was sold in 1953 and was subsequently used as a carpet showroom amongst other things until cleared to build the Ring Road. Edited by member, 4th Nov 2019 4:53 pm

I used to sneer at square on photos as being lacking in artistic merit. Now I pounce on them as good representations of buildings. Roll eyes I've mentioned this before but the chapel replaced a medieval building that would have been outstanding in its heyday. Gosford Street must have been quite well off as it had a series of buildings with more than the standard 2 storey style. Prof, to pinpoint the location in your mind, it was between Whitefriars Lane and The Mermaid but on the other side of the road. Edited by member, 4th Nov 2019 5:31 pm

Thanks Neil and Helen, I probably did see the carpet sales building but did not ever know the Whitefriars' St Church. Gosford St was on my route home to Stoke.

It’s amazing how many places you take for granted but once they are gone you cannot recall and wish you had taken more notice (or even a photo or two!).
