Albion Congregational Church, Stamford Street East, Ashton-under-Lyne - Tameside

One of Ashton Under Lyne's trilogy of three landmark roundabout churches, built in 1890 to the design of John Brooke. An 8 bay nave with hammer beam trusses, side aisles, transepts with four stage tower and spire; which coupled with decorated gothic style fleche give an imposing roof scape. The spire has been identified in several architect inspections as needing urgent attention, with open masonry joints and movement in the apex cross tree and holding down rod. The clock window, formally maintained by the town council is now the responsibility of the congregation.
