Congregational Chapel

The slender campanile of Edward Walters' Congregational Chapel can be seen rising up above the railway viaduct as it crosses the end of Deansgate. Walters was the architect who designed the Free Trade Hall and several of the fine warehouse in Manchester including the one on Portland Street that is now the Thistle Hotel. He built the Congregational Chapel in 1856 of red brick with stone dressing.

It is now a Grade II listed building. In the 1980s it was apparently converted by Pete Waterman into a recording studio and a pub.
