St Mary's in the Marketplace, Churchgate, Stockport - Stockport

Large parish church. The east end chancel is medieval in origin, with much of the rest rebuilt in the C19 in a mostly Gothic style. There have been several phases of repair work, concentrating on urgent masonry repairs to the tower and chancel arch. Vestry repairs were completed in 2016, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund's Grants for Places of Worship scheme. Further phases of work required to the side aisle pinnacles. A Minor Repair Grant from the Taylor Review Pilot was received in 2019 to repair the south west porch roof.
