YEARS of memories have been razed to the ground after an iconic Millbrook vicarage was demolished.
Workmen have cleared the site where the vicarage of the neighbouring St James’ Church once stood.
A blaze in October 2016 consumed the whole inside of the structure, leaving parts of it unsafe.
An investigation into the fire by Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service concluded “the most likely cause is deliberate ignition”.
Now workers have cleared the whole site, removing another building that offered an insight into Millbrook as it used to be.
The vicarage had remained empty for several years before the blaze.
However, the church, which is part of the Church of England’s Diocese of Chester, remains in regular use.
