Church of Emmanuel, Barlow Moor Road, Didsbury - Manchester

Victorian church built in 1858 by Starkey and Cuffley. Reordered interior with cafe and crèche facilities featuring a William Morris glass in the south transept window. Support has been offerred through the Heritage Lottery Fund's Grants for Places of Workship scheme. This will resolve water ingress issues in the north and south aisle below inaccessible valley gutters, together with an extensive number of slipped slates on the roof and localised stone erosion to window tracery.
