Heritage Consultant Salford, Townscape helps out Church

Townscape, Chartered Town Planning and Heritage Consultant are pleased to have been involved in the securing of listed building consent for a derelict and redundant grade II listed Church in Salford  Manchester.

The Church St Ignatius of Antioch was constructed in 1900 to the designs of Darbyshire & Smith. An attached rectory was added in 1904. Both buildings were constructed as part of the New Barracks Estate, Salford which was built between 1900-­‐1904 on the site of a former early C19 infantry barracks. The estate was Salford Corporation’s first social housing scheme, and not only provided housing, but also community buildings, including Salford Girls’ Institute (destroyed during WWII), Salford Lads’ Club (1903, Grade II) of the Smiths fame and the Church of St Ignatius.

Graham Nash, original member of the pop group The Hollies, (and later of Crosby Stills and Nash fame) which was formed in Manchester in the early 1960s, is understood to have begun his musical career in the choir at the Church of St Ignatius.


The Church and Rectory are currently derelict and plans have been submitted for comprehensive regeneration of the church and rectory. Townscape was pleased to provide heritage consultant services to the design team and production of a comprehensive heritage appraisal and impact assessment.
