Gospel Hall in May 2001.

Situated at number 46 High Street, near to the junction to Commercial Street. The Gospel Church has been there for many years.

The first Gospel Hall which I can find any reference to was held in a house on Hermitage Street.

After this there is conflicting hearsay, as some people say it then moved to Station Road, while others say it was over on the top of a building on Eachill Road, as they remember going up a lot of steps to enter the rooms.

This would be one of the first buildings as you enter Eachill road.

Round about 1953 the Gospel Hall moved to its present premises on High Street.

Still Investigating………

Sadly on the 29th June 2004, before I was able to investigate further the Gospel Hall closed its doors for the final time in Rishton. Or is it.........
