St Erkenwald's History - Redundancy

In 1978 the church was declared redundant and closed in preference to St. John's. A petition was presented to the Privy Council pointing out that 700 homes were about to be built on the Kursaal site, but it was felt that St. John's could cope with the pastoral needs that would arise.
