Church of St Peter, Chapel Street, Congleton - Cheshire East (UA)

Town centre church of 1740 in Georgian neoclassical style with Gothic pinnacled west tower completed in 1786. Iron casement windows with semi-circular heads. The interior has galleries to three sides. There are problems of iron corrosion to the windows which has a disproportionate effect on the stained glass. A comprehensive ceiling repair project has recently been completed in 2018 supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund's Grant For Places of Worship scheme. There is another phase of ceiling stabilsation work needed.
