|Long Street Methodist Church, Middleton,
Greater Manchester is a unique example of Arts and Crafts architecture
which is still in its original use as a place of worship. Built by the
internationally renowned architect Edgar Wood in 1899-1901, it forms one
of the key vistas in the townscape of Middleton.
The future of Long Street Methodist Church as a community and as a structure is under threat.
It is a sign of our times that buildings such as this, with so much to give to the community and infused with so much collective memory, can disappear from our view.
The Friends of Long Street Methodist Church has been set up to counteract this.
Survival will ensure that the church remains a precious gem in the architectural heritage of Middleton and a unique icon in the history of international architecture.
