Hardres Street Wesleyan Centenary Hall and Sunday Schools were built in 1911 to be used in conjunction with Hardres Street Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, see https://www.mywesleyanmethodists.org.uk/content/chapels/kent/ramsgate-hardres-street-bethel-wesleyan-methodist-chapel-kent  which was some distance away on the opposite side of the street. In 1940 it had three schoolrooms and six other rooms. It continues to be used in conjunction with the nearby Methodist Church, see https://www.mymethodisthistory.org.uk/chapels/kent-2/ramsgate-hardres-street-methodist-church-kent

  • From a letter to the Trustees I have recently rediscovered, it would appear that 19, Hardres Street remained in Methodist ownership until 1976 when the Trustees were served with a Buildings Preservation Notice, and the building was subsequently listed. Ignore the previous note about covenants.

  • The building to the left (beyond the tree and on the corner of Staffordshire Street) was the original manse for Hardres Street. Although long sold, the restrictive covenants were still in place in the 1970s I seem to recall!
