No. 870 - Devonport - William Street Salvation Army Hall

Devonport was created in 1890 with the merging of two towns on the opposite banks of the Mersey River; Formby on the west bank and Torquay on the east bank. The area was first settled in the 1840s.

The William Street hall is the third Salvation Army hall built at Devonport. The first hall opened in Stewart Street in 1894. This was replaced by a second hall located in Steele Street which opened in December 1900. [See No. 836]. The Steele Street Hall was used until the 1970s when it was replaced by the third and current hall on William Street. The William Street Hall was substantially modernised in 2014.
