Church of St Mary the Virgin, Meadow Lane, Haughton Green is of timber frame construction and was built in 1874/6, the architects being the brothers James Medland and Henry Taylor of Manchester. The design was inspired by the nearby Church of St Lawrence in Denton. The foundation stone was laid by its benefactor, James Walton, on Saturday, 11 April 1874 and the church was consecrated on Saturday, 25 March 1876. LinkExternal link

The church is Grade II listed LinkExternal link as is the lychgate LinkExternal link

The lychgate is also by James Medland and Henry Taylor. The slated roof is supported by a timber frame that, in turn, rests on stone walls. The two posts rise from, and are braced to, sole plates attached to the walls. The upper parts of the posts are braced to tie-beam trusses on each side and the eaves and verges overhang the roof trusses. The timber gates are hung on iron hinges.
