Church of St John, Church Avenue, Rochdale - Rochdale

1907 church of random squared millstone grit, with flush ashlar string courses, window surrounds and mullions. Roofs are pitched Westmorland green slates in diminishing courses with red clay ridges. The church has previously been re-roofed through the joint Historic England / Heritage Lottery Fund's Repair Grant for Places of Worship scheme, but severe metal corrosion is causing cracking to the stone window surrounds and high level masonry to fall.
