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 sandstone in a mostly Gothic style. There have been several phases of repair work, concentrating on urgent masonry repairs to the tower and chancel arch. The church plays a significant role in the centre of the historic part of the town. Vestry repairs completed in 2016, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund's Grants for Places of Worship scheme. Further phases of work required to the side aisle pinnacles and porches.
