Church of St John, Oldham Road, Failsworth - Oldham

Large 1845 Gothic style church of hammer dressed stone with slate roof. Soaring four-stage west tower with broach spire. Repair phases to the eastern roofs and the tower and spire now completed, but slate roofs to the nave and aisles remain in a vulnerable condition. A Minor Repair Grant from the Taylor Review Pilot was received in 2019 to help with gutter maintenance.
