An oasis of calm among modern buildings

St George and it's pretty churchyard, with attached school house and rectory is an unexpected surprise, amongst now derelict refineries and other 20th century developments.

Built by Isaac Shaw in 1757-59 for Mary, Countess of Stamford as a chapel-of-ease to serve the hamlets of Carrington and Partington, it is unpretentious, yet it reflects the liturgical practices of the time.

Oblong with a small apse, it has original tall round-headed windows: there are box pews set out in four bays, open benches at the back under the 1829 west gallery and an attractive tall white marble font with cover.
