Hearsall Lane with the Hearsall Baptist Church in view with the square tower. Further down would be found the Church of St Mary Magdalene (the church with the blue tiled roof). Edited by member, 5th Nov 2018 6:32 pm

I think this incorrect - as the picture says, it's Queensland Avenue. Hearsall Lane is to the photographer's right. St Mary Magdalene is behind the houses on the immediate right. I was married there in 1971.

I stand corrected matchle55! Just shows how long I've been away from Coventry. I was at my aunt's wedding in 1947 at Hearsall Baptist Church. Now I see Queensland Avenue I remember the name. Edited by member, 5th Nov 2018 10:59 pm

Another view of Hearsall Baptist Church (opened 1928) In 1961 a "new" Hearsall Baptist Church opened, adjacent to the older building

This is a tremendous site. Yet again articles and photos that bring back memories, this time the photo of the original Hearsall Baptist Church. I recall when attending Hearsall Junior School in Kingston Road, the church was used as an overflow and I remember having lessons in rooms on the top floor. Always a favourite of mine, on the way home (circa mid 50's) I would pop into the Kudos on Hearsall Lane (see Shops of Yore) for pennyworth of sweets, wonderful memories. Also there was a Woodlands RE teacher, Mr Rollason who I believe was the minister at the Baptist Church. He was a gentleman of the 'old school' who treated all with respect, one of the few who did at that school. Once again thanks Midland Red for the memories

All Souls is 'my' church. I was baptised / took first communion and married there - as well as my parents married there too and where most of our family occasions (and funerals?!) are. It's lovely inside.
