Rochdale Town Hall
Rochdale Town Hall is one of the country’s stand-out municipal buildings in the Gothic Revival style; it boasts a landmark clock tower and acclaimed stained-glass windows. Having received a Grade I listing in 1951, Rochdale Town Hall has long been marked as a location of international architectural significance.
The Town Hall is in the process of being transformed. Following a successful round-one bid to The National Lottery Heritage Fund for £8.9m, this development will open the building’s history to an even larger audience by the planned completion date in 2023.
St. Leonard's Church
Middleton Parish Church stands above the Middleton town. It replaced a timber Saxon Church, dedicated to St Cuthbert, in 1100 with a stone church dedicated to a Norman saint, St Leonard. Cardinal Thomas Langley rebuilt it in 1412 reusing some of the original features and Sir Richard Assheton enlarged the church one hundred years later. This grade 1 listed building is unique with its unusual wooden belfry added in 1666 using timber from Hopwood, the famous Flodden window (1508), the monumental brasses (from 1480), the Jacobean Hopwood Family pew (1620) and the choir vestry (1958). It’s the oldest building in Greater Manchester.
