Atlas Street Clayton

I understand there used to be a church on the site of the County Council building on Atlas St. ( I think it is a day nursery).
Does anyone know what the church was called or when it was demolished please?
thanks, Mark

Re: Atlas Street Clayton

Atlas St joined Anglesea St(now Blackburn rd).At the junction there was a chapel which the entrance was on the main rd. There have been photos and discussions on this but I can't recall the name.All gone now for the motorway.

I have asked all the oldies that I know(one man is 93) no one remembers this Church.....so I think it must have been a long time before the motorway was built.
There has not been a Day nursery on that spot.....but there is a Day nursery further along Atlas Street....and it has been there for a long time.....situated before what used to be Allspeeds factory.
I can remember the Houses being demolished to make way for the motorway.
There was a long block of terraced houses on the Load of Mischief side.

Anyway, Thank You Les....I always wondered where Angelsea street was....I never knew that it was the name of what is now Blackburn Road.

Re: Atlas Street Clayton

It was the old Baptist Chapel. Replaced by the one on Sparth Road.

This looks like it could be what you are looking for....though I do not remember it....it looks like it is situated on the corner of Atlas St and Blackburn road.

Yes, looking at it, I think it would have been above where the council offices were.
Now I remember the council offices, but not this building.

Re: Atlas Street Clayton

I'm guessing it was demolished sometime in the 1960's. There was quite a gap before the new one was built. Don't know where the Baptists went in the intervening period.

Well, that IS interesting....I lived in Clayton then and cannot remember it at all.....and other people older than me do not seem to remember it either.
I showed my other half the picture and he said he remembered it very vaguely....he said it was empty for a long time.
I could not find anything with a date on(regarding the picture).
