Aldershot – Former Grosvenor Road Methodist Church

Located on Grosvenor Road, this Methodist church was built in 1877 and was used as a soldiers’ home and hall for over a century. It closed in 1989 as the Grade II listed building was too expensive for the local Methodists to support, but fortunately it was saved by converting it into offices and retail space.

The foundation stone of the church was laid in 1875 and the building was constructed with a range of architectural styles, including Gothic, Early English, Decorated and Perpendicular. The 1990s conversion has been sympathetic and the exterior of the building does still look like a church, which is more than a church conversion I saw by Tesco did….
