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."

Today all that is left is a derelict churchyard with a few monuments.
