Salvation Army Citadel, Mexborough


Not much history on this location other than it was the local Salvation Army citadel and has been unoccupied for a number of years. The lower ground floor appears to have been rented out as a flat but is also currently vacant. The building was for sale:

but has since been removed from the market and fell in to further decline.

Other local Salvation Army citadels including the Sheffield branch and the Barnsley branch, which I visited in April:

have closed down, perhaps due to a lack of recent donations.

Back in 1908 St. John's Church of England Junior and Infant School stood on the location of the citadel:

Most recently planning permission had been applied for in 2014 to turn the location in to four three storey town houses:

but no development has been made.
