1920 – Memorial Hall & Cross, Glasson Dock, Lancaster

Architect: Charles B. Pearson

0006

From The Building News, October 15 1920: “This hall is treated in a domestic style appropriate to its purpose and architectural character. The site is intended to form the centre of a small village garden scheme with groups of houses approached by roads on both sides of the premises. The building consists of entrance hall, with committee and cloak rooms, an assembly hall, and reading room. Over the stage is arranged a good-sized billiard room approached by a staircase in the projecting bay. A memorial cross, to be carried out in stone, is intended to stand in front of the hall, and round its base the names of local fallen heroes are to be inscribed in panels. The drawing reproduced was exhibited at tho Royal Academy this summer by the architect. Mr. Clharles B. Pearson, F.R.I.B.A.. of Dalton Square, Lancaster.”
