"We hope that this city of Gloucester could be built up as one which is in every way beautiful for men to live in, with well-built houses – small maybe, but comfortable and suitable for everyone within its boundaries; with its slums cleared away, with its streets and roads well fitted for the work which has to be done on them. In connection with that I venture to think that the Church has done and is playing its part."
Ven A.J. Hodson - Archdeacon of Gloucester
