Demolition of Wesley Broadway Church

The Wesley Broadway Church was originally called St Paul's. It was designed by James Bennie in 1911 and was the third Methodist church on this site. In 1989 the two Methodist churches in Palmeston North (the other in Cuba Street) combined to become the Wesley Broadway Church. The church was demolished in 2020 as it did not meet the new earthquake standards. Photo taken on a Huawei GR5 mobile device.
