Church of St John the Evangelist, King's Road, Ashton-under-Lyne - Tameside

Gothic Revival church of 1847-9 by Shellard for the Church Commissioners, with transepts and tower by G Shaw in 1862. Rock-faced stone with slate roof. Nave with aisles and transepts, and almost free-standing south-west tower. Concern about interlocking coping detail. Poor detailing to the side of the aisle roof and general concerns about high level maintenance.The church received a grant through the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repairs Grant in 2016. The church has been the victim of heritage crime.
