An historic Chronicle Country building was demolished this week.
Kingdom Hall in Biggleswade was pulled down and will be replaced by a new place of worship.
The Biggleswade Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses will now build the new building in its place.
Central Beds Council approved the application to replace the Shortmead Street building – formerly St Andrew’s Church Memorial Hall – though it was opposed by Biggleswade Town Council.
Town councillors agreed that it was always likely that the application would be approved.
They moved to request that a plaque is placed on the new building commemorating Kingdom Hall.
