SJ8696 : Base Camp Cafe

taken 8 years ago, near to Gorton, Manchester, Great Britain

Base Camp Cafe
Base Camp Cafe
St Benedict's church, a fine and lofty Victorian structure, Grade II listed, closed as a place of religious worship in the early 21st century and has now been given a new lease of life as the Manchester Climbing Centre. Among its ecclesiastical treasures are two windows (not shown here) by the Arts & Crafts Stained Glass artist, Margaret Edith Rope.

In this view, an elevated platform below the east window is occupied by a cafe and a climbing equipment shop. The climbing walls occupy the centre of the nave.

A note on a Geograph discussion thread informs us that Myra Hindley attended this church.
