Roman Catholic Church of the Holy Name of Jesus, Oxford Road, Chorlton on Medlock - Manchester

The Roman Catholic Church of the Holy Name of Jesus was designed by J. A. Hansom and built in 1867-71. An imposing sandstone and slate building, it is a significant landmark on a major road into the city. Failure of lead work and slating are allowing water ingress to the east sides of the transepts which is now endangering roof timbers and the interior.
