Getting rid of old church building in Scawby Brook
Members of the Scawby Parochial Church Council had a mission in August 1970 – and they wanted to get rid of it!
The Scawby Brook Mission Church building had ceased to be of any use to them and they were looking at the best way to dispose of it. Built of iron and wood in late Victorian times, it had once been a billiard hall and came to Scawby Brook from Somerby Hall.
The Mission building had been used for services up to the late 1960s, but then closed.
Years earlier there had been a flourishing Sunday school, as well as weekly services.

But by 1970 the Anglicans were holding joint services with Methodists in Scawby.
The parochial church council also pointed out that now more people had cars, they could easily get to church in Brigg.
The Scunthorpe Telegraph reported in 1970 that two inquiries had been received about the building.
Although the council was hoping someone might make a small offer "it just wants to get rid of it."
