Heritage Open Days - Long Street Methodist Church

15 September 2021

Wednesday 15 September 2021
1pm - 4pm

Long Street Methodist Church
Lever Street
M24 5UE


Every year in September, England’s largest voluntary cultural event returns as a celebration of local and national heritage. Co-ordinated nationally by the Heritage Open Days National Partnership and locally by Link4Life, Rochdale takes part by opening the doors to various historic buildings throughout the borough that are usually closed to the public or charge an entrance fee.

Local buildings full of history will be open and free to explore, many of which include differing age, style and function across the borough.

Long Street Methodist Church is one of Middleton's 'Golden Cluster' of historic buildings. This arts and crafts inspired church and former schoolrooms is a masterpiece designed by Edgar Wood (1860-1935).

Long Street Methodist Church and Schools were built in 1899. It is an outstanding Grade II* listed building incorporating Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and modern stylistic elements into a magnificent whole. The writers of the latest Pevsner guide describes the interior of the church as a 'knockout', and the adjacent school is pure Arts and Crafts with a lovely 'outdoor room' garden accessed through an Art Nouveau gateway topped by a cubic modern sculpture.

Heritage Open Days will run here on the following dates/times:

  • Wednesday 15 September 1pm - 4pm
  • Friday 17 September 1pm - 4pm
  • Saturday 18 September 1pm - 4pm
