as it appeared after the demolition workers moved in"
Hanover House apartments

of the sumptuous chapel which had opened in 1865.
A sign for M Keenan offers
recycled materials, timber, stone and flags (paving stones).
as a note, my Dad (Edward Harrison) purchased some floor boards which
are now used as flooring in my attic, and some paving stones which were
used as my driveway.
I gave the paving stones to the Embsay Steam Railway to use as station platform paving stones at their Bolton Abbey station.
