Brookfield Unitarian Church, Hyde Road, Gorton - Manchester

Landmark sandstone spired church in a churchyard surrounded by woodland. Designed by Thomas Worthington in 1869-71, it has a six bay nave with north and south aisles. Arcade columns are of polished granite and wall faces are plaster lined with a large painting over the chancel arch. The roofs have been repaired but the interior has suffered from consequential water damage to the plasterwork. The church has been a victim of heritage crime.
