St Luke, Chadderton, Church of England
It was founded in 1875 and closed in 2008.
The parish was created an ecclesistical conventional district in 1875. Land was given by the Hamilton Family of Springbank, Chadderton for the building of a new Church. The foundation stone was laid 2nd November 1882 Church (incomplete) 16th November 1888. It was intended that the Church should have a Tower & Spire reaching a height of 183ft and an octagonal shaped Choir Vestry & Library both of which were never built due to lack of funds. There were also plans for a large Organ Chamber high up on the south side of the Chancel which was also never built although a large stone arch gives an indication as to its position and size.
