In 2016 we completed the restoration of the Christopher Whall painting in the Lady Chapel ("Our lady of the Goyt") thanks to a very generous donation from one of our Friends. We held a viewing of the painting in Church on Saturday 26th November when coffee and biscuits were served while people came to see the result of the first restoration and conservation project undertaken by the Heritage Trust.
Authors of The Arts and Crafts Movement in the North West: A Handbook, Barrie and Wendy talked about some of their discoveries as they researched this book.
The church will again be open for Heritage Open Weekend on Saturday 10th September from 10.00 to 16.00, and on Sunday 11th from 12.00 to 16.00. Guides will be on hand to show you our beautiful Arts and Crafts style building and artefacts. Light refreshments will be available.
