St Mary's from Bridgefield Street
From Bridgefield Street looking across the car park off Great Egerton Street towards St Mary's Roman Catholic Church. The M60 motorway crosses in a cutting below the church.
St Mary's Roman Catholic Church, Heaton Norris
St Mary's Roman Catholic Church on Dodge Hill was designed by Pugin & Pugin,1897 and is a prominent local landmark. It is constructed of red brick with stone dressings and window tracery and a slate roof. The west front has a tall gabled bell cote on a stepped base beneath which is a statue of the Virgin and Child. Stepped buttresses framing a large rose window are flanked by traceried windows with paired lights.

It is now isolated from the town by the M60 motorway which runs in a cutting below. The large retaining wall above the motorway is often targeted by graffiti artists.
