St Andrews St Andrew’s Church, Travis Street, was consecrated in 1831, when the area was still open with fields, rather than houses around.  The church itself was built of stone and could seat 2000 people.  Its clock tower was a local landmark.
The situation changed throughout the second half of the nineteenth century with the industrial development of Manchester, and the building of rows of terraced housing, and soon afterwards factories and workshops.  As the nineteenth century progressed, the congregation changed from being a relatively wealthy one to one that represented the poorer elements of the community.
Even so, the church had a thriving Sunday school, with an average attendance of 450.  An 1877 survey of the parishes of Manchester reported that St Andrew’s was amongst the poorest both in terms of its permanent income, and its weekly collection.  The church was finally demolished in 1961 by which time there was hardly anyone living in the parish.

stthomasardwickSt. Thomas's  Church Ardwick.
A Grade II Georgian church. The original church was built in 1741, but it was enlarged in 1777 and again in 1831, and the tower was added in 1836. The campanile-style tower is rather out of character with the rest of the building. The church became redundant in 1978 and was later converted into office space. Today it is the St. Thomas' Centre managed by the Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisation. The Main Hall can accommodate 140 people and there are six other meeting rooms each with a capacity of 30 people.

StMarytheVirginEcclesSt Mary's Church, was in medieval times, the centre of a large ecclesiastical parish containing Pendleton, Pendlebury, Clifton, Swinton, Worsley and Barton-upon-Irwell. To the west the parish covered a portion of Chat Moss to the River Glaze and was bounded by the River Irwell to its north and east. The church is of ancient origin and was the only church in the parish for several hundred years. A church has occupied its site since Norman times, and probably before then. The church contains few remains of its earliest incarnation, but the tower base and west end of the north aisle are from the 13th century. The 14th century structure was enlarged in the 15th century and the chancel was reconstructed in the 16th century and rebuilt in 1862 by J P Holden.
