St Stephen's Church, Grimsby

Following a request for information in the Grimsby local press, I was contacted by a local gentleman, named Bryan Hicks. He had the following interesting experience to share:

My grandparents were quite involved in the church at the time and my Grandad Harry Tuck was church warden. I remember going into the church one morning and seeing that one of the large metal "poles" that spanned the church had snapped and was hanging into the centre of the church. I duly told my Grandad and shortly after they declared it unsafe.

Thanks for that Bryan. If any other readers have interesting experiences to share, please do get in touch, via my Essex Churches contact page.
