The Church of St Philip with St Stephen, Salford
The Church of St Philip with St Stephen, Salford
St Philip’s Church Salford sits a short distance off Chapel Street in an enclave of cobbled streets and Georgian buildings. Designed by Sir Robert Smirke in 1825, the building’s Greek style is unique in Salford. The Bank Street frontage is the most impressive, with its bow–fronted porch with iconic colonnade and balustraded parapet and bell tower above. The church is one of Salford’s most distinctively designed buildings, yet also one of the city’s undiscovered architecture gems. It may well be the only neo-classical building left in the city. It is a Grade II* listed building (English Heritage ID:471589 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings).

The church became St Philip’s with St Stephen in 1962 when St Stephen’s Church on St Stephen Street closed and the congregations merged. The site of St Stephen’s church is still a small park between Trinity Way and St Stephens Street.
