Roman Catholic Church of St Chad and presbytery, Cheetham Hill Road, Strangeways - Manchester

Designed by Weightman and Hadfield in 1846-7 in the Perpendicular style, with coursed sandstone rubble, slate roofs and a prominent three-stage tower. Simple plan of sanctuary and nave, with aisles to north and south. A first phase of repair work funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund's Grants for Places of Worship scheme was completed at the end of 2015. A second phase to repair unstable window tracery due to corroded iron cramp damage, as well as rot issues to the vestry is underway. A Minor Repair Grant from the Taylor Review Pilot was received in 2019 to help with rot to the belfry.
