History

The church was built in 1874–75 and designed by the Lancaster partnership of Paley and Austin.[2] It was consecrated on 15 March 1875 by the Bishop of Manchester.[3] It initially consisted of a nave, a chancel and a south aisle. The north aisle was added in 1911, and the baptistery and south porch in 1925–26.[2] In 1998 the oak pulpit and choir stalls were removed, and the pews were replaced by chairs.[3]

Architecture

St Margaret's is constructed in sandstone.[3] Its plan consists of a three-bay nave, north and south aisles, a south porch, a baptistery, and a chancel.[2] The architectural style is Decorated.[4] In the Buildings of England series, the authors describe the interior as "well-proportioned", and with a "single-framed roof".[2] The reredos dates from 1885. The memorials to the World Wars have been designed to match the reredos; the inscriptions are on small tiles, separated by gold mosaic. The stained glass includes a window in the south aisle dated 1894 depicting Faith, Hope and Charity. In the south wall of the chancel is a window dating from about 1920 by Walter J. Pearce, and in the east of the south aisle is a window from about 1950 by T. F. Wilford. Also dating from 1950 is a window in the baptistery depicting Scouts, Guides, Cubs and Brownies.[2] The two-manual organ was built by George Sixsmith and Son in 1973.[5] It replaced an earlier three-manual organ.[6]
