Synagogue of Withington Congregation of Spanish and Portuguese Jews, Old Lansdowne Road, Didsbury - Manchester

Red brick synagogue of 1925-6 by Delissa Joseph under the supervision of Joseph Sunlight in the Art Deco/Neoclassical style of the time. The building appears to be generally in good condition but is suffering from some water ingress from concealed parapet gutters and failing downpipes. A Minor Repair Grant from the Taylor Review Pilot was received in 2019 to help with maintenance.
