the old fire station



The York Trinity Methodist Chapel opened in 1856, then converted to a much needed city centre fire station in 1938, retaining the riverside Sunday school block, a side street facade and the chapel floor.

Closed over 2 years ago with appliances & crew moved nearby, now due for demolition and the inevitable apartment developments. It was surprising how much the building has deteriorated in such a short space of time and equally surprising to see so much detail remaining from the original Chapel.

Huge thanks for access to the arts organisation 'Blank Canvas' who have temporary artistic residence before the development begins.

And no, I didn’t slide down the pole, I’m a chicken.

'York Mix' ran a nice piece with a few more pics of mine - click here
