Top:  Newspaper cutting about the demolition of Queen Street Methodist Chapel, in 1955 it had been renamed "St Marks" when the Wesleyan Chapel had closed and the congregation then went to Queen Street.
The report reads:
"Workmen have been knocking down a bit of old Yeadon this week. Our picture shows the former 100 years old St Marks Methodist Chapel as it appeared after the demolition workers moved in"
Hanover House apartments were built on the site.

Middle: Demolition of the chapel is underway, little is left except for the back and side walls.
Bottom: Demolition of the sumptuous chapel which had opened in 1865.
A sign for M Keenan offers recycled materials, timber, stone and flags (paving stones).
Just 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.
