St Edmunds Church
Henry E Price, the first City Architect of Manchester, designed and constructed St Edmunds Church in 1881. It was last used as a congregational church over 20 years ago and narrowly escaped demolition in the 1880’s.

Unique ‘Old Church’ white paints have been used to create an authentic atmosphere. All walls are finished with a specially- manufactured emulsion with matching woodwork.

The church overlooks Alexandra Park which is is one of Manchester’s earliest and most intact Victorian Park.
In 1995 the park was listed grade 2 on the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens.
The 6o acre site was bought by Manchester Corporation and laid out between 1868 and 1870, The design was subject to an architectural competition which was won by Alexander Gordon Hennell of Chancery Lane, London.

Hennels original design was ahead of its time, integrating the provision of traditional ornamental features and sporting facilities, something we take for granted in parks today.
The design exploited the flat and featureless site by creating a series of broad sweeping curved footpaths, perfect for the Victorian fashion of promenading, whilst defining the oval activity areas.
In 2014 £5 million was spent in the park to sympathetically restore, reinstate original features and also adapted facilities to meet the demands of a modern park.
