Red Hall Methodist New Connexion, Audenshaw

Red Hall, (Methodist New Connexion),
Audenshaw Road,


There are some old gravestones which are likely to be from the orioginal church.

Church History

The original church was built in 1783 and was sited at OS grid reference SJ914970. This building had to be demolished in 1877 to make way for the Audenshaw resevoirs which were built to hold the drinking water for Manchester piped from Thirlmere in the Lake District.

In 2004 the church joined with Guide Lane Methodist and Bridge St. United Reformed to form Trinity Church Audenshaw in the Red Hall building.

The church building was demolished and a new one erected. Jack Roche wrote an article about it which was published in a church magazine.
