Church of St Peter, Ashton Under Lyne

St Peterís Church was built between 1821 and 1824, and was designed by Francis Goodwin in a free Perpendicular style constructed in ashlar stone with a slate roof. The church is an example of a Commissionersí Church built with money voted by Parliament as a result of the Church Building Act of 1818 and 1824 (LinkExternal link ). It is a Grade II* listed building (English Heritage ID:212664); in the listing text (LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings ) English Heritage describe it as ďa particularly imposing and elaborate example of a Commissioner's ChurchĒ.

An intriguing feature of the church is the clock in the east gable which is driven by a shaft extending the length of the church from the mechanism in the west tower.

During 2013-14 a programme of refurbishment of the east end of the church was carried out.
