Church of St Chad, Church Lane, Saddleworth, Saddleworth - Oldham

Grade II* church rebuilt in 1831-33 but incorporating fabric from the original church of 1746. Ashlar with a slate roof, five bay nave and west tower. Remote location but attracts visitors in the summer. There is a significant fault with the east window, where the tracery has bowed due to the presence of rusting iron dowels within the joint positions. A Minor Repair Grant from the Taylor Review Pilot was received in 2019 to help with rainwater pipe maintenance.
