The shops on the W. side of Grove Road had not been built, and The Grove, the Old Vestry-room, and the Police Buildings (all mentioned elsewhere) had not yet been pulled down. It had been hoped by many that the 3 fields in question might have been secured as a public park. (See Chapter XVII. post.)

I say no more on the subject as I was not connected with the building of the Church in any way.
