Summary Description

The church building is in a prominent position at the highest point of the town, above the Bollin Valley. A chapel was founded on the site soon after the borough was established in about 1220. The most recent rebuild took place from 1898 to 1901, this time in Victorian Gothic, except for the still-surviving chapels, and the chancel, which had been added in 1884 (in a similar Gothic style).

Visiting and Facilities

The church is open for worship.
