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. It has flat roofs which were not visible to inspect.
