The first church here was built in 1757 for just £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. St George's parish covers the part of Mossley that was historically in Lancashire. The church is situated in Top Mossley, close to the road coming over the hill from Ashton.

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!
