Waldridge Village Hall (Waldridge)

The first building to appear on this site is a 'hall' marked on the fifth epoch Ordnance Survey maps of the 1950's (1). Streetview images of the hall on the site from 2009 show a single storey building with brick foundation and timber cladding under a pitched bitumen-felt roof (2). The hall contains a First World War roll of honour that was once in the Primitive Methodist church of Waldridge during the time that the nearby colliery was still open. The church has been demolished now but the memorial was saved (3).
