Christ Church, Princess Road, Didsbury - Manchester

Victorian church of 1881-2, built in sandstone. The west end tower is void of the original pinnacles. A completed initial phase of parapet gutter replacement was followed by a reroofing to replace solidly bedded concrete tiles which caused extensive timber decay. An application to the Heritage Lottery Fund's Grant for Places of Worship scheme was successful and internal replastering will be completed once the walls are sufficiently dry. The church has been a victim of heritage crime.
