hoole branch library
Chester City Branch Library, 31 Hoole Road (across the road from the War Memorial), 1968. It was demolished in 1985 and a petrol station constructed on the site.
The branch library moved further up Hoole Road and this, in turn, was flattened in 2013 due to the vital demand to make way for a 'free school'..
