No. 234 - St Paul's by the Sea at Low Head

St Paul’s by the Sea at Low Head is a multi-denominational chapel built in the 1980’s as part of the Ainslie House Aged Care Complex. It is a substantial and attractive brick building but its real significance lies in its interior. The chapel’s stained glass windows, organ and other contents were taken from the historic St Paul's Church at Cleveland Street in Launceston which was demolished in 1975 to make way for the redevelopment of the Launceston General Hospital. The demolition was agreed upon only if the hospital recycled the building as much as possible.

This blog entry with be updated with photographs of the historical stained glass windows and organ once I have had an opportunity to gain access to the interior of the church. The history as well as photographs of the old St Paul’s Church can be found on an earlier blog entry which is linked HERE. Links to articles about the windows and the organ can be found at the bottom of this page.
