Building record MYO4072 - Knavesmire Glass, South Bank Avenue


The existing building has a memorial stone of 1900 dating from the time it was constructed as the South Bank Mission Chapel. This was an outreach centre from the larger church of St. Clements , Scarcroft Road. It was a multi purpose building functioning as a place of worship before the construction of St. Chad’s (1925/6), as a temporary school by 1906 and a Sunday School 1931. Similar in style and materials to St. Clements though plainer with simpler detailing. The building has local historical significance as an indicator of the early 20th century development of South Bank. Architecturally it is a typical building of its age, with some attractive design touches. More importantly it adds variety and depth to a context of terraced housing. A significant building of local visual, historical and architectural interest. Nominated for inclusion on the Local List of Heritage Assets.
