St Stephen's, Flowery Field :: Shared Description

St Stephen's, the parish church of Flowery Field was consecrated in 1891, the foundation stone having been laid nearly two years earlier. The present building was the outcome of a Mission Church (an offshoot from St. Mary's, Newton, started about 1883), and was erected through the munificence of Colonel Ashton, of Newton, and Little Onn, Staffordshire. It is a fine stone building, in the 13th century style of architecture, containing nave and chancel, and boasting a handsome tower and spire of about 120 feet high. The first vicar was the Rev. T. M. Tozer.

The Church closed in July 2011 LinkExternal link and former worshippers must now attend St Mary's, Newton SJ9696 : St Mary's, Newton (S).

The church was deconsecrated and placed on the market with an asking price of £180,000.


In 2015 Manchester-based architecture and interiors practice Millson Associates was appointed by Insite Properties to deliver a residential conversion of the church. The project includes the refurbishment of the church into 20 apartments and designed to respect the internal architecture of the church, alongside the development of adjacent land to deliver 16 two- and three-bedroom family homes.
