Manchester Chinese Christian Church

This building on the corner of Cable Street and Chadderton Street has the appearance of a wharehouse or factory and examination of an 1888 map of the area indicates that it was home to T Barlow Brothers Umbrella Factory.  Today there is an empty lot beyond the old factory on the Oldham Road side of the building.  The old map shows that at that time St. Paul's Church stood there.  The map indicates that the curch had a 95 foot tower with a spire that added a further 30 feet.

Ironically, the ground floor of the old fatory is used today as the Manchester Chinese Christian Church.
