Images on this site are arranged into rough areas by location as in my book 'Still Occupied', available on Blurb. Eventually this site will contain all the images in that book and more.
This building was on the corner of Carr St, which appears now to have disappeared into a parking area of the Maizecor site. It was only a short street and ended at the Cottingham Drain.
It was built probably around 1803/4 as a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, one of the first in Hull, and had seating for 531 worshippers. The plain brick was coated with stucco some time in the mid 19th century and the building is mentioned in the Hull pages of Pevsner. The population of Sculcoates fell and new Methodist churches opened elsewhere in Hull and the chapel became a printing works. It was in use by Mason and Jackson Ltd from 1910 until after I took this picture - you can read more details and see pictures in Paul Gibson's Hull & East Yorkshire History . Sadly listing of this building was refused and it was bought and demolished for a lorry parking area by Maizcor in 2001.
