Hi Jim Thank you for your kind words. I hope you can make it back again for another tea, and if you're around for a service, make yourselves known to the clergy who will be very welcoming.

We got married in the beautiful church before we had children and we was so impressed by the lovely architecture of this historical building, the [lack of] parking was the only issue we had but other than that it’s a great church

It's title says it's just a parish church. But to be honest, I've seen cathedrals that don't have the same as this place. It's a beautiful church, well maintained and is a credit to the town, but once inside. Decorative, with wonderful stonework and carvings,...More

Interesting C of E 'cathedral-like' church in heart of Bury - also Garison Church of Lancashire Fusilliers. Bit biased as I was in the choir for a number of years with my sons but such a great history.
