Church of St Chad, Church Lane, Romiley - Stockport

Church dated 1864 by Medland and Taylor. Rock-faced stone with ashlar dressings and a clay tile roof. The building comprises a nave, aisles, transepts, north west tower and polygonal apse. The church has a recently re-ordered interior with narthex meeting room and the roof coverings have been replaced. However, the broached spire has a failed iron ringbeam which has expanded and cracked the surrounding masonry. The church received a grant through the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund in 2016 for the water ingress, but further repair work is needed.
