ASHTON-UNDER-LYNE MANCHESTER ROAD SJ 99 NW (south side)

4/16 Church of 12/01/67 St. Peter

G.V. II*

Church. 1821-24. By F. Goodwin for the Church Commissioners. Ashlar with slate roof. 3-sided gallery plan with west tower and a small canted vestry taking the form of a chancel. Gothic revival. 7-bay nave with weathered plinth and coped parapet. Each bay has a 3-light transomed window with Perpendicular tracery and hoodmould. The fine tracery is pre- fabricated in cast iron which is painted to imitate stone. Weathered buttresses (diagonal at corners) have crocketed pinnacles. The east end has a rose window above the vestry and bold octagonal pinnacled piers define the nave and 'aisles'(although there are not actually any aisles). Impressive 3-stage tower with set-back buttresses which turn to octagonal corner piers at the upper stages and are topped by pinnacles, door in first stage, 3-light west window, clock faces below gablets, tall paired lancet belfry openings and elaborate arcaded parapet. IINTERIOR: quatrefoil cast-iron columns support the gallery which has an arcaded parapet and has been partitioned off beneath the west end in C20. Gallery benches mostly survive. Tall pannelled dado to side walls beneath gallery. Panelled east wall, the panelling apparently coming from Manchester Cathedral. Panelled ceiling which turns to a ribbed vault above the gallery. Stone font. Organ has elaborate case. Stained glass to many windows, east window by Evans of Shrewsbury. A particularly imposing and elaborate example of a Commissioner's Church.
