Albion Sunday School


This week's view of My World shows the former Albion Sunday School, situated between Crickets Lane and Penny Meadow in Ashton.

Opened in 1862, this was the largest Sunday School in England! In more recent times it has been a carpet warehouse and now an office furniture warehouse.

It is a Grade 2 Listed Building because of its splendid architecture. It is built of red brick with stone banding. As the photo shows, nearby apartments have been built in a matching style.

The photo was taken from the Memorial Gardens.

"Albion Sunday School" is my contribution to this week's "My World" feature. Please check out the other blogs participating in this week's My World.

  2. I can certainly understand why the apartment building was erected in imitation of the style of the Sunday School building. Lovely architecture.
