Gloucester in The 1970s Page2

The Northgate Methodist Church that once stood proudly facing Worcester Street and demolished in the late 70s.

The cover of a booklet the Church produced to mark its end. It sights three main reasons.
1. The ever increasing costs.
2. It was too big for the congregation.
3. The site was featured in the city development plans.

The small picture below shows the shops that once stood where the Northgate was built. It was taken around 1877. You can just see the arch to the original chapel.
