all hallows demolishedUpdated: All Hallows church at Witts Hill (SO18 4QG) has been demolished, and plans have been put in for a new children's day care facility in a two-storey building on the site.

The final service at the church was in April 2014, when nearly seventy past and present members attended, including former clergy of the Parish of Bitterne Park.  

The building appears to have been unused since that time.

A spokesperson for the Bitterne Park Parish previously said that the building was no longer cost-effective to keep open because of the cost of repairs and alterations, and that the parish was working with All Hallows parishioners to enable them to attend services at the Church of the Ascension. However there was some "bad feeling" from regular church goers earlier in 2014 about the intended closure and  consultation process.

A planning application to create a new "childrens day care facility in a two-storey building with associated levelling of the site and car parking following demolition of the existing church" has been lodged with Southampton City Council: the application is here.
