ST DAVID’S WELSH CHURCH MANCHESTER, MEMORIAL STONE LAYING - The memorial‑stone of the new Welsh church of St. David, which is in course of erection in Lime Grove, Oxford‑street, Manchester, was laid on Monday by the Earl Egerton of Tatton. The plans have been prepared by Messrs Preston and Vaughan, architects, Diocesan Chambers, Manchester. The style of architecture adopted is Early Perpendicular, and the materials employed are red brick, with Ruabon terracotta dressings. The plans include nave and aisles, with chancel and vestries on the south side. Chairs will be provided for the worshippers instead of pews. The church will accommodate some 400 persons. The builder is Mr. R. Carlyle, junior, Ardwick. The work was commenced about three months ago, and it is hoped that the church will be ready for consecration about Easter next.  [Manchester Guardian 4 October 1898 page 5]
