St Lawrence – Denton

St Lawrence Church Denton, 131 Town Lane, Denton, Manchester, M34 2DJ

The church in Denton is a timber framed, Grade II listed building and is one of only 29 surviving timber framed churches and chapels in England.

Known locally as the Black & White Church, for pretty obvious reasons the church is over 500 years old, interestingly the trees in the churchyard have Preservation Orders on them, the church itself always looks pretty remarkable in its thoroughly urban setting and is well worth a look if you are in the area.
