St Andrews Church Ramsbottom
St Andrews Church Ramsbottom
St Andrew’s Church was built in 1834 by the Grant family as a church in connection with the Presbyterian Church in Scotland. St Andrew’s is the oldest church in Ramsbottom and the Grant Brothers are believed to be the original Cheeryble Brothers of Dicken’s ‘Nicholas Nickleby’.
The church had a somewhat stormy existence in the 1860s until in 1869 the last member of the Grant family deprived the congregation of its church and offered it to the first Bishop of Manchester as an Anglican Church.
Eventually it became a mission church attached to St Paul’s, Ramsbottom, and then, in 1875, Bishop Fraser consecrated it as the Parish Church of St Andrew.
The building is probably unique in being the only Parish Church formerly used by another denomination.
