Long Street Methodist Church
Long Street Methodist Church in Middleton weclomed visitors for Heritage Open Day.
Completed in 1901, the church was built in the Arts and Crafts style by architect Edgar Wood and displays elements of Gothic, Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and Modernism.
During the open day, the church and former school building were open for visitors to explore the grounds. There were also activities for children including colouring, games and a magician.
Visitors could also view an exhibition of Edgar Wood entitled “Edgar Wood and the Northern Arts Crafts Movement” and members of the Middleton Family History Group were on hand to advise people on researching their ancestors.
Maureen Glynn, a visitor guide at the event, said: “We have had a few people coming in and having a look. The land train has also been going around Middleton and brining people, so that has been good.”
