Attercliffe Wesleyan Methodist Church stood between 732 and 752 Attercliffe Road.

Hi - with the fear of having asked this before (and I am sorry if I had!) has anyone a photo of this church. David sent me a photo just recently BUT it was of the original church which was demolished well before I started attending church in the 1950/60's.

The one I remember had a frontage on Attercliffe Road although it was a little off the pavement with some shallow steps up to the folding doors (I think they were folding). There was also a back entrance which was via Chapel Lane which came off Worksop Road and we used to go up that lane to the Girls Brigade and Band of Hope Meetings - the front was only used on Sundays and special occasions.

It closed down about 1962-67 when the congregation moved to Prince of Wales Road. I have been looking for a while for a photo of it and it seems strange that there is no copy on the Sheffield Pictures site at the Sheffield Library. I am in New Zealand so personal searching of possible repositories is not an option.

Hope someone can help.

Second point saw a topic regarding Attercliffe Christ Church and the fact the chapel building, which was used as the church after the original had been bombed, was no longer in use - It was very sad to see the state of it. I married there in 1969 and my mother in 1947 - we both married on the same date - just a few years apart!

Thanks

Dorothy

Here's a map showing the new building in 1935. The Sunday School section of the chapel can be seen beyond the playground at Bodmin Street - link to 1979 photo:

I have a picture taken from the opening day programme.  My Mum and Dad were married there and I was  baptised there.
