Tyne and Wear HER(16889): Penshaw, Front Street East, Salvation Army Hall - Details
Penshaw, Front Street East, Salvation Army Hall
Religious Ritual and Funerary
Nonconformist Meeting House
Salvation Army Hall
Salvation Army Hall. On 1919 OS. Simple brick gable-fronted hall. Recently closed. An absolutely plain little building devoid of architectural merit, but totally characteristic of the movement which once had building in quite a number of pit villages, and so of considerable social historical significance – probably the last pre-World War I Salvation Army building to survive in the district. Suggested as a contender for Listed Building Status by Peter Ryder.
