Parish Church of St Thomas, St Thomas's Place, Stockport - Stockport

Commissioners' Church of the 1820s. Church has been the victim of heritage crime. Vegetation growth and pigeon infestation at eaves level, and falling masonry indicate problems with high level stonework. Internal damp patches indicate water ingress. The upper level windows are currently replaced with corrugated plastic, not in keeping with such an important church. Embedded, rusting iron cramps in the upper course of masonry along the side elevations are resulting in localised destabilisation.
