A hillside preaching church

This austere Georgian church is perched on a hillside overlooking Delph.

St Thomas was built in 1765 by the local community who named it Heights Chapel. Inside it is sparse yet atmospheric, with a stone flag roof and a bellcote.

As a 'preaching church'; it has galleries on three sides and a small sanctuary with a plain Venetian style east window.

Many of the nineteenth-century fittings were removed to the new parish church in Delph.

This is a Champing™ church.
