St Lawrence's Church, Denton

St Lawrence's Church, Denton is on the busy Ashton to Stockport Road (A6017), and so is a notable landmark for many travellers. It is at the centre of the parish of St Lawrence, about a quarter of a mile from Denton Town Centre.

The church is a timber-framed building dating from 1531 at the most conservative estimate. It is one of only 29 of this type of common mediŠval church building remaining in England and Wales.

Originally the timber-framed structure was neither a parish church nor dedicated to St. Lawrence. It began as a chapel of ease dedicated to St. James. It became a parish church under the name St. Lawrence in 1839.
It is known locally as:
Th'owd Peg, because of the wooden pegs used to join the timbers, or alternatively,
The black and white church (for obvious reasons).
