Church of St Paul, Walkden, Manchester Road, Swinton - Salford

Church of 1848 with nave, clerestory, aisles and chancel with south west tower, built in the Gothic Revival style. Structural cracking is evident on the north side, with cracking at the base of some buttresses. The ground around the church is saturated, which may be contributing to the structural issues, and some further investigation is required.
