The Stella Maris was demolished in April 2012. The foundation stone was rescued by the Manchester Modernists and was found to contain a time capsule, inside this was a half crown coin and a scroll commemorating the laying of the foundation stone in 1964.

I found this building quite exciting so was sad to see it go. The council really are clueless if you ask me.

It is in the Chapel Street 'Development Corridor'. Its a bit complicated but if you take a mix of the Salvation Army not having much use for the building, a dash of European Funding and a council who's only solution to regeneration is to demolish everything and anything then there is your answer.
