Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

Mr. Robert Lees, the owner of a local mill at Woolley Bridge and also a row of cottages in Lees Street allowed the use of an upstairs room for the Mission. Later the downstairs room was acquired and eventually the cottages were altered to make the final premises. When Hadfield became a separate parish in 1872 the Mission became associated with St. Andrew's Church. The Woolley Bridge Mission had been in existence for over 100 years when it closed in October 1964. The area has since been redeveloped for industrial and retail use [2009]. (1) The terrace of cottages on Lees Street has since been demolished and a warehouse is now situated here [2010]. (2)
