Mossley on Monday: St George's Church


It's not St George's Day yet but today's photo has a lot of St George about it! This is a view of St George's Parish Church in Mossley, seen looking across the yard of St George's Primary School. You will also see the flag of St George fluttering from the pole at the top of the church tower.

The first church here was built in 1757 for the bargain price of £600! They got quite good value for money as the church lasted 120 years before it began falling apart.

It was replaced by the present church, which was opened in 1882, with the tower being completed 5 years later.

The school was opened in 1873 and claims to be the oldest primary school in Tameside. It has had various extensions over the years, most recently in 2007.
