SD 80 SW
SP/692 Heaton Park Congregational
Congregational church. 1881 by Alfred Waterhouse. Red brick with pressed brick
and stone dressings, steeply pitched slate roofs. Gothic Revival. School room/hall
on ground floor, church above. Separately-roofed buttressed corner tower contains
entrance, a twin doorway in arched opening, with traceried tympanum and hood-mould.
Lancet stairlights leading up to church, which has similar lancets and a large 4-light
plate-traceried arched window in the gable end. Triplets of little lancets in both
main gable and tower, similar in form but differing in detail. Louvre to tower roof
ridge with decorative ironwork. Ground floor hall windows square headed (though with
expressed relieving arches) with mullions and transoms. Stained glass to church.
Original staircases, doors and interior fittings intact. A good and complete example
of the work of Waterhouse, economically planned and sensitively detailed.
