Union Street United Reformed and Methodist Church, Union Street, Oldham - Oldham

Built in 1855, one of the few remaining churches designed by Moffat Smith and an early example of a Gothic style non-conformist church in the North West. Rusticated sandstone rubble with a slate roof. Nave with two aisles and tower. The original spire was removed in the 1930s and a castellated top added. A first phase of work has been undertaken with the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund's Grants for Places of Worship scheme. A second phase should complete a comprehensive repair programme.
