St Michael's Vestry Hall

The proposal for this site was for a Vestry Hall for St Michael's Roman Catholic Church to replace premises nearby that were demolished for the Inner Ring Road.  St Michael's is Grade II listed and dates back to 1803 and was originally built by the Unitarians.

Unable to find out if the vestry hall had ever been built, I visited the church in June 2014.  At the time, it seemed to be serving the city's Polish population and I was unable to find anyone who might remember the church in the 1960's.  So, as there was no sign of a vestry hall, my best guess is that it was never built.  If you know otherwise, please get in touch!
