|||Albion Street, gale damaged Church of the Nazarene (Morley) (3 comments)
|27th June 1984.
View along Albion Street looking in the direction of Queen Street. On the right is the Church of the Nazarene. It is screened off and about to be demolished after it was virtually destroyed in gale force winds on the evening of 2nd January 1984. The site was retained by the church authorities and a new church built. Straight ahead Morrison's supermarket and the car park are visible. The section of Albion Street between Corporation Street and Queen Street was blocked off for the building of Morrison's and the Windsor Court shopping precinct in 1972 and the area was cleared except for the Church of the Nazarene. It became surrounded by car parking. The onion shaped dome in the background belongs to the former Morley Industrial Co-operative Society building later to become Barclays Bank. It is situated at the junction of Albion Street with Queen Street.
