The top of St Paul's RC church viewed with a zoom from near the end of Hamnett Street.

St Paul's Roman Catholic Church was founded on Hamnett Street in 1848, meeting in rooms above a factory. In 1852, Mr Ashton, owner of the Newton Banks Print Works, gave a plot of land off Newton St in Newton Moor, to build a Catholic church. The foundation stone was laid on Friday, 20th May 1853 and the church opened for worship on 21st June 1854.

This information is from a 120pp book by Bernard Marshall written in 1998 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the parish. It is downloadable as a pdf file</a> and contains a wealth of information. LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
