Looking today at the architectural gem that is Giffard house and its adjoining chapel of St Peter and St Paul situated across from today’s Civic Centre in North Street:
its hard to imagine any one would wish for either of these historic buildings to be demolished.
But they did; as this was stated in the Express and Star on the 28th of August 1978. I quote;
“The Town Council has received an application from the agents of this Roman Catholic Archdiocese, who want to replace it with a four story office block”.

The Parish Priest FR. Malloy said, “he hoped to then build a new parish church in Whitmore Reans”. “Thank God this didn’t come off”
