Bamford United Reformed Church, Norden Road - Rochdale

Former Congregational chapel and attached Sunday school now used as church hall. Chapel dates from 1801 although with a later Gothic facade thought to date from building of the Sunday School in 1861. Repairs supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund's Grants for Places of Worship scheme have been completed to address water ingress through the roof and penetrating damp. There has been partial collapse of the ceiling to the chapel and another phase of work is required. The building has been the victim of heritage crime.
