Castlefield Congregational Church

For a time it was the offices of Artingstalls Auctioneers. The building was converted to a sound recording studio in the 1980s and owned by Pete Waterman. Rick Astley recorded "Never Gonna Give You Up" in the chapel. Waterman sold the building in 2006 to Bluetree Estates for conversion to offices. After a leasing deal fell through in 2010 the building was put up for sale again and remains unoccupied.
