  1. About 10 years ago i had a meeting up there to discuss if a modern higher curved ceiling could be installed to cover up all the original features , i was amazed that all the original features and the rows of chairs still been in place whilst the people under the existing ceiling knew nothing about them . Wish i had taken photo’s now .

  2. I’m sure the propaganda on the hoardings said they were going to preserve the original features inside the new building. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos with that part of the text visible. I was quite shocked to see them attacking the place with big hammers.

    • Yes, they certainly did but it never happened. Same as the Pillbox on the site of the new Tesco that was also going to be preserved…..

  3. Redcar’s heritage is being removed before your very eyes. It’ll be the cinema next. It’s down to the community to stand together to protect these things not stand back and moan once they’re gone.
