Chapter three analyses the decline of Orangeism in the city. Taking into account the perspectives of Orange officials, the author presents these reasons to the membership and affiliates. The overall response challenges the orthodox perception that post-war slum clearance (and the physical removal of lodges and communities) was the main causal factor in the decline of the Institution, suggesting that other factors were just as (if not more) important; such as apathy, a decline in religious observation, and a lost Orange youth.
