Holy Angels Catholic Church, Hale Barns, Cheshire
Occupies the site of the former Tudor style Manor House (1879) built by the then Chief Medical Officer for Manchester, John Leigh. A wing of this old house (victim of a stray German bomb probably intended for Ringway Airport) was still standing, ruinous, in the grounds of the more modern Woodeaves (1915) when the whole twenty two acre estate and house was purchased by the Catholic Church in Altrincham for the Christian Brothers to found nearby St Ambrose College. This opened at Woodeaves in 1946, having moved from temporary accommodation in Bowdon. The Waugh family, who had owned Woodeaves prior to its sale, donated part of the land for the building of a church in memory of their eldest daughter, Mary, who had died at the house in 1941. After years of effort, the Catholic families of Hale and Altrincham raised sufficient funds to realise this dream, and the ruins of the Manor, and its wooded gardens, were replaced by the Church of the Holy Angels, erected in 1963. 1
