Skywatch Friday: Brookfield Church, Gorton
Rather a grey sky this week, but I wanted to show you Brookfield Unitarian Church. It lies off the busy Hyde Road in Gorton, its spire a prominent landmark.
A few days ago I finally spent a little time exploring its environs. This shot is from the quiet area at the rear where old gravestones lie strewn around above Gore Brook. To the left of the church is the mausoleum of Richard Peacock (1820-1889) who was a Liberal MP for Manchester Gorton and responsible for the construction of Brookfield Church.
You can see the other photographs I took that day on the Geograph website.
