Dukinfield Old Chapel, Chapel Hill, Dukinfield - Tameside

Unitarian chapel of 1840, built to replace an earlier building, that has strong links with the nearby Old Hall Chapel of the 1640s. Cruciform plan with lofty nave, three-sided gallery and east organ shrouding the elevated pulpit. Ceilings of quadripartite vaulting with plaster ribs and lath and plaster fields. Extensive glass by Morris, with various windows by Capronnier. The now repaired roof and rainwater system was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme. A further phase of dry rot eradication is required with extensive new decorative plasterwork.
