Mount Bethel Baptist Church, St Georges Parade, Wolverhampton.

Originally the Salvation Army Citadel.

This road has clearly seen much change over the years. This, the former Salvation Army Citadel, being one of the few remaining older buildings. Reference is made to the Citadel being built in Cleveland Road dating back to 1911. Although I cannot find any information, I suspect that this was part of Cleveland Road before being severed by the Ring Road. The building later became the Mount Bethel Baptist Church.

The door on the side labelled “Gallery” is of interest – the implication is that this is the only way to access the upper level. It would be fascinating to have a look inside at some point. To the right can be seen the tower of the former St George’s Church (after which this road is now named), featured in a previous post.
