[former] Salvation Army Barracks, Lower Galdeford, Ludlow

The Salvation Army were known to be meeting in Corve Street, Ludlow, in December 1887 and had a hall in Upper Galdeford by September 1888. On Monday 3rd September the foundation stones of a new barracks (built by Mr. Weale of Sandpits) in Lower Galdeford were laid. The opening services of this Barracks (in the photo) were held on Saturday to Monday 17th-19th November 1888. Since then the facade has been completely altered and covered with render, but a small part of the original datestone remains, dating the building to 1888. The building was being used by the Elim Christian Fellowship in 2002, but they have moved and the building is now used for commercial purposes.
