Church of St Luke, York Street - Rochdale

This 1862 church designed by Joseph Clark stands at the heart of Heywood where, with its tall spire, it forms the town's main focal point. Built of sandstone and with a slate roof, it has a very tall nave with a clerestory and has a good collection of Victorian stained glass. A first phase of work to repair the aisle roofs under the Historic England / National Lottery Heritage Fund Repairs Grant for Places of Worship scheme has been completed, but the nave roof is still in poor condition and requires a second phase of repair.
