The History Files The History Files needs your help

Last year our first donation drive was a complete success, thanks to some wonderful people who helped us gain a security certificate and meet some of the increasing web hosting costs. This year, that certificate needs to be renewed and another round of hosting costs need to be supplimented. As the History Files is a non-profit site it still needs your help. Please click anywhere inside this box to make a small donation via PayPal so that we can continue to provide highly detailed historical research on a fully secure site. If every visitor donated just a penny then we'd cover a year's running costs in a day! Your support is highly appreciated.

Nuneaton & Bedworth Part 1: Churches of Bedworth & Nuneaton

Bedworth Salvation Army Corps Hall, Warwickshire

Bedworth Salvation Army Corps Hall occupies a small retail premises on the western side of Leicester Street, about fifty metres north of Mill Street and flanked to the north by the vast bulk of a Tesco superstore and car park. In 2015 the Army extended its lease on this property for a further ten years, until 2025. According to media reports, it had been in the town since 1993, initially operating a youth centre, but soon expanding to run a café, and a book and charity shop.

Nuneaton Salvation Army Hall, Warwickshire

Nuneaton Salvation Army Hall stands at the southern end of Victoria Street and Dugdale Street, overlooking the junction between the two. Despite bearing the air of council terraces, this hall provides the normal Sunday morning worship duties along with a Sunday School. According to the scant evidence available, the Salvation Army in 2018 celebrated 130 years of work in Nuneaton, making the year of their arrival 1888, although certainly not in the present building.
