St Nicholas, Farnborough
St Nicholas, Farnborough
Daughter church of St Giles the Abbot, Farnborough (see TQ4464 : St Giles Church, Farnborough, Kent BR6), built to serve the housing in the area that had been developed pre and post war. Work started in December 1957 and it was opened in June 1958. The structure was a prefabricated building from Rema Ltd of Salisbury. Initially known as the "New Church Hall", it was not named as St Nicholas's until 1967, to mark the 10th anniversary of the commencement of construction. The name was chosen partly because of St Nicholas's association with children, who made up a large proportion of the users of the building at the time, and also because St Nicholas's Day, 6 December, fell very close to the actual anniversary, 8 December!
