Wycliffe Congregational Chapel, Wellington Road North, Heaton Norris - Stockport

Medium sized, Gothic style chapel, once surrounded by terraced houses, north of Stockport town centre. Designed by architect Edward Walters, and built in 1849 of small coursed stone with ashlar dressings. Renewal of the roofs and valley gutters was completed in 2014, but the interior of the church is still in a very poor condition. Masonry failure associated with movement to the southern walls is ongoing and being monitored whilst a further phase of repairs is being prepared.
