Church of St Nicholas, Kingsway, Burnage - Manchester

Important and prominent 1930s Modernist church designed by Cachemaille-Day. Described as "a milestone in the history of church architecture in England" by Pevsner. A first phase of repair supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund's Grants for Places of Worship scheme has addressed the leaks associated with the parapet gutter. There are considerable corrosion problems with the original windows and these will need a susequent phase of work.
