Re: Poverty Hall

Sorry, never heard a thing about this. You could perhaps contact Blackburn Library.

I have a feeling that this could be the Methodist Church.

Nah that was futher up the road towards Blackburn.
The place seems to have been across from the quarry at the bottom of cabin end row.
If you go to mario maps on the Lancashire county council website and view the historical maps you can see it there.
