New Build

NEW CHURCH AT THORNHAM NEAR MIDDLETON The foundation stone of a new church at Thornham, near Middleton, was laid on Saturday by Mrs Smalley of Norton Grange. For ten years, services have been conducted in a school. It is now intended to build chancel, nave and vestries, at a cost of about £4,500, leaving the completion of the edifice to a future period. Mr R B Preston of Manchester is the architect. [Manchester Guardian 10 September 1906. Page 10]
