Church of St Paul, Compstall Brow, Romiley - Stockport

Church of 1839-40, with chancel added in 1866 and vestry in 1905. Built of tooled ashlar with a slate roof; the chancel is rock-faced snecked stone. Some damp on the north elevation, possibly where the ground is higher than the floor level. Movement cracking around the window openings and the stained glass in the majority of the openings has been heavily distorted.The settlement associated with the later chancel addition has been underpinned with grant support from the Heritage Lottery Fund's Grants for Places of Worship scheme.
