More photos from Flowery Field
As a follow-up to my earler post of 22nd November 2015 here are a couple more photographs taken at the Heritage Open Day in September.
The Remembrance windows in the baptistry were designed by one the church's own members, Vanessa J Rothwell. The window was installed by Mrs Marian Lewis (a former May Queen) in memory of her parents Joseph Rhodes (1885-1959), Chairman of this Church (1949-59) and his wife Emily Rhodes (1883-1969). The work was assisted by a grant from the Foundation for Sport and the Arts.
The organ at Flowery Field Church was built by Thomas Pendlebury of Leigh in 1904. Previously installed at Canal Street Methodist Church in Stalybridge it was reinstalled at Flowery Field in 1958 replacing the original organ by Hill of London. The instrument underwent a programme of restoration and improvement in 1999-2000.
