Previously St. Mark's church and graveyard, Cheetham Hill
Previously St. Mark's church and graveyard, Cheetham Hill
St. Mark's was built in 1794 and demolished in 1998.

An article pre-dating the building says: "Such was the spiritual destitution of the benighted folks of Cheetham Hill, Crumpsall, and Broughton that between the ancient parish churches of Prestwich and Manchester there was neither a place for the solemnisation of divine worship nor for the interment of the dead."

The graveyard is now derelict, the railings shabby, the gates padlocked.
