Church of St Bartholomew, Whitworth Rake, Whitworth - Rossendale

Church of 1847-50 by J Clarke. Seriously damaged by fire in 1984 and rebuilt in much reduced form by the Buttress Fuller Geoffrey Alsop Partnership in 1988. The only parts of the building to remain substantially intact were the embattled west front and tower, the aisle walls and arcades. The walls are of sandstone rubble and the roof is slate. At risk due to unsafe masonry at the top of the tower.
