St George's at sunset

In the foreground is part of St George's C of E Primary School.

Prior to 1831, the Church of England had no place of worship in the township, and for ecclesiastical purposes Hyde was connected with the Parish Church of Stockport, which place many of the inhabitants attended. Others worshipped at Mottram, or at Denton Old Church.

The construction of the church began in 1831 and it was consecrated the following year. St. George's was first formed into an ecclesiastical parish in 1843.

Details of the early history of St George's can be found on Old Hyde.

  1. interesting history .. I especially like the reference to reference to attending services at "Denton Old Church" (smile)

  2. Interesting feel here Gerald. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  3. Not many churches I have seen have a clock.

  4. Nice look. This might even drag me back to worship... that was a joke. I'll enjoy the outside of churches. Had my fill of the innards.

  5. Sounds like another place that had a church forced on them though in this case they may have welcomed it.

  6. i enjoy all the spires. lovely area.
