Church of St Mary, Church Street, Eccles - Salford

A substantial church of great historical significance, with a four bay nave, aisles, south transept with porch and a west tower. Dating from the C15, but with C13 and C14 remnants, and a chancel reconstructed in the C16. Large scale rebuilding in 1862. The church appears to be suffering from a localised sub floor collapse of a burial chamber in front of the communion rail and altar and this is allowing the floor to deflect.
