Additional notes

In 2002 the church was gutted in an arson attack, demolition was considered but 600,000 was raised for refurbishment. Drawings for the reconstruction were in the name of E. C. Harris, Capital Project and Facilities Consultants, Manchester. They involved a reduction, making the church half its original length

You can look for churches using the search boxes or on the pins on the map. Each entry gives the architect and location, and the icons on the left show listing status. Where available, we have included links to more detailed online information about the building, such as the English Heritage listing description. We hope you will find some of your own favourites here and discover some new buildings too.
