A closer look at St Mary's Catholic Church, Heaton Norris
I've featured this church before on 28th May 2013 viewed then from across the M60 motorway which now isolates it from the town.
St Mary's Roman Catholic Church on Roman Road, Dodge Hill was designed by Pugin & Pugin,1897 and is a prominent local landmark. It is constructed of red brick with stone dressings and window tracery and a slate roof.
The west front has a tall gabled bellcote on a stepped base beneath which is a statue of the Virgin and Child. Stepped buttresses framing a large rose window are flanked by traceried windows with paired lights.
