By 1966 they were no more - the pop scene had arrived and God bothering was out of fashion! Around this time Tetley's Brewery (just next door) took over the building and used it to house their dray horses and their own Fire department. Sadly in 2014 - in spite of being historically and architecturally interesting the building was demolished. This has happened many thousands of times in Britain - and the reason? Foreign investors (I say foreign because almost all of them are) aren't the least bit interested in our heritage.I first saw the windows in 1995 and kept a. Eye on them until they were boarded up around 2007 - this (as usual) meant that vandals could smash them from the inside without being seen. Boarded up buildings are ALWAYS broken into! To a Pikey (feral person) seeing a building boarded up is an open invitation to rob and vandalise. When demolition started I saw my chance to rescue them - only to find almost all were smashed to smithereens. A few years ago I had plans to open a Pub and were going to use these (and a few other things of interest) in it but my Doc says my liver already looks like George Bests old one so yet.
