Church of St John the Baptist, Algernon Road, Walkden - Salford

Church of 1876 with transeptal vestry and organ chamber and crossing tower in the Gothic Revival style. Poor rainwater goods are creating excessive overflow with water streaming down the exterior walls. There are visible signs of damp and fracturing at the base of several buttresses. The roof is mostly intact, although vegetation is visible in some parts.
