    Question St. Oswalds Social Club

    I'm not sure if i've put this in the best place,but....!? Anyway, I was driving past St.Oswalds church in Old Swan,and i took a quick pic' of this building while i was stopped at the lights. I've always been curious about it's original use, as it's among various religious buildings,including the church itself, but looks to be of a totally different style! To me, it looks like it may have been some sort of theatre, or cinema,but it's position would seem to contradict this? Anyone clarify this

    It was a Wesleyan Methodist chapel. Built 1845 and sold to RC church in 1866

    Canon Gerry was a fantastic priest, unlike the soon to depart megalomaniac they've got now.

    The old school/Montini club and I think the convent too, has had planning permission submitted to turn them into apartments.
