Ambleside Parish Centre, Vicarage Road

By GW Oxley

The Methodist congregation has been meeting here since 2005. The building is situated on the edge of the parish churchyard. It was designed by Paul Grant Associates. While the use of local materials ensures that it sits in harmony with George Gilbert Scott’s parish church nearby it is unashamedly modern in details such as the towers and the huge east window.
