St Mark’s Church was built between 1868 and 1869. It was designed by Pilkington and Bell in a free Gothic style typical of Frederick T Pilkington. The church was extended in 1879 by Ireland and MacLaren. Featuring superb stained glass windows and a raised timbre ceiling, this A-listed church is a unique example of circular congregational seating and aisles. An ambitious energy efficiency project, grant assisted by Climate Challenge Fund, is currently under-way, you can see the progress of this work during your visit and find out about ongoing community activities.
