Two Trees Lane United Methodist Free Church
Two Trees Lane United Methodist Free Church, Haughton Green, Denton, Manchester, UK was built next door to the Cock Hotel, which predates it. Architecturally, it has a strong resemblance to the Wesleyan Sunday School on the opposite side of Two Trees Lane (now much altered), which was built in 1877, and it is possible that the same architect designed both buildings.
The date of closure of the church is unknown but trade directories suggest that it was prior to 1903. It was by then known as Victoria Works and was occupied by the engineering firm of John Brown (Denton) Ltd which was founded in 1880 and specialised in the manufacture of hat wire and spokes for the cycle and motor trades.
Additional information on its history can be found on the Pitt Dixon website.
The current occupiers are Moorside Manufacturing, a family owned and run precision engineering company formed in 1991.
