St Columba's Church Drypool is on
the northern side of the Holderness Road and Laburnum Avenue
junction, in the Summergang district. A temporary church opened
on the site in 1914. This became the church hall when the main
building was opened in 1929. In July 1943 the church was destroyed
by enemy bombing, and services were transferred back to the hall.
The present replacement church was completed in 1960, set a little
further back from the widened road.
Holderness Road United Reformed Church
lies on the southern side of Holderness Road, about thirty metres
east of Westcott Street. Congregationalists had a church on the road
between 1841-1843. A new church was registered in 1874, designed by
W H Kitching in the Gothic style, and built in red brick with yellow
brick and stone dressings. It was damaged by bombing in 1941 and in
1949 two houses were converted for the present chapel.
Holderness Road Brunswick Chapel
(unconfirmed) lies on the eastern side of Holderness Road,
opposite Morrill Street. It was registered by the Wesleyans
in 1877 to replace Durham Street Chapel. An assembly
hall, added by W A Gelder in 1886, increased the accommodation
to 800. The present building was opened on the site of the old
chapel in 1962, probably confirming the photo as Brunswick
Chapel. The assembly hall was used by the National Assistance
Board in 1964.
The attractive Holderness Road Primitive
Methodist Chapel was on the eastern side of the road next to
the three Victorian shops on the corner of Williamson Street.
Also known as Bright Street Chapel, it was founded in 1864.
Still in use after the Methodist union of 1932, it was damaged by
bombing in 1941 and had been demolished by 1964. What remains is
the school room, integrated into later buildings - the chapel
would have been to the left of this photo.
Salvation Army Franklin Street is on
the southern side of Franklin Street, behind the Holderness Road
shop fronts. The citadel was built in 1907 but closed in 2006 and
was converted into flats. Several other Army centres have existed
in Hull: Queen Street (opened in 1837); Cambridge Street
Barracks; Westmoreland Street Citadel; the red brick
Madeley Barracks (1888); Cogan Red Fort; Naylor's
Row Barracks; and the small Marlborough Terrace Battery.
St John's Church & Community Centre
is at the south-east corner of Rosmead Street and Estcourt Street.
It was first founded as St John the Evangelist Drypool in 1791.
This was closed in 1916 and moved to the present site, further away
from the centre of Hull. A wooden church was destroyed by fire in
1923, replaced by a temporary church, now the parish hall, and the
present church was built in 1952. In 2007 it became a combined
Southcoates Lane Methodist Chapel stood
on the eastern side of Southcoates Lane on its southwards leg,
midway between Kedrum Road and Bilsdale Grove. Hedon Road
Primitive Methodist Chapel had been opened in 1894 to replace
smaller premises but was destroyed in 1941. Temporary accommodation
was then used before a new chapel was built in 1957 on Southcoates
Lane. It was designed by B W Blanchard, but was demolished between
Sacred Heart Catholic Church stands on
the south-east corner of Southcoates Lane and Cundall Close in the
Summergang district. Development of the docks resulted in a rapid
expansion of housing west of the city and a great increase in the
Catholic population, so the parish of the Sacred Heart was
established. It was near the new church that the site for St
Catherine's Convent on Southcoate Lane was purchased in 1930,
the year after the church itself was registered.
St Aidan's Church Summergang is at the
south-east corner of Southcoates Avenue and Lorenzo Way. Services
were first held at 77 College Grove in 1924 and a temporary church
opened in 1925. The first part of the permanent brick church with
nave and chancel was dedicated in 1935 by architects W Milner and
R B Craze. In 1954 it was given a new district taken from the
parishes of Drypool, Marfleet and St Michael, and the following
year it was consecrated.
