ONE OF BARBADOS’ historic landmarks is soon to be demolished.
Contingent on deconsecration and tenders for demolition, the abandoned St Joseph Parish Church in Horse Hill should be reduced to rubble sometime in September.
Rector Errington Massiah and the congregation were forced to leave the more than a century-old building in June last year, because the structure had developed some deep cracks and was deemed unsafe.
Services are being held at sister church St Aidan’s Anglican Church in the interim.
Chair of the project committee of the Barbados Diocesan Trustees, Henry Taylor, told the DAILY NATION the deconsecration should take place by the end of this month and the tendering for demolition should be by mid-August.
