Church of St Peter, Chorley Road, Swinton - Salford

Landmark 1869 GE Street church, completed as a single project. The roof is suffering failure of the gutter base and inefficient water discharge, allowing water to enter along the arcade of the south aisle. The first of two phases of work to renew the northern half of the roof has now been completed and a further phase to the southern roofs is being considered.
