Stan Laurel Bishop Auckland baptism church for sale
I was also baptised at St Peter's and my brother and sister sang in the choir there. My dear old dad ran the Sunday school back in the 50's. I have fond memories of the youth club there where they even tried to teach me to dance. Needless to say they failed.
I'm really sad to hear of it's demise and understand there's planning permission granted to turn it into a house.
From BBC news............
"Although the comedy legend was born in Ulverston, now in Cumbria, his family moved to Bishop Auckland, and he was baptised at St Peter's Church in 1891, and went to King James Grammar School. The Grade II-listed church closed a year ago, and a buyer is being sought. It would be suitable for a range of uses such as residential development, a gallery, soft play area, or a cafe. St Peter's Church was completed in 1875 at a cost of £7,000, more than double the average of the period. The last service was held in December 2013. It closed the following June and is now at risk of falling into neglect. It is expected the building will be sold along with the adjoining church hall."

JTull 007: The Jethro Tull Forum is not on Facebook but there are some called The Jethro Tull Board or Group that have been quite abusive to TRUE TULL Fans. This Forum is very open minded and not so childish.
