Rosemount


Rosemount, aka Trinity Methodist Church, lies at the junction of Bennett Street and Old Road.

It was built in 1885 and is part of the Hyde & Denton Methodist Circuit.

It's a very dignified looking building. I like how they kept the old, cracked '1885' sign.

this reminds me of the church at my school, St Thomas... it is also a beautiful red brick structure.

Great picture of a fantastic building Gerald. I think the Methodists made it a point to avoid a lot of ornamentation and other do-dads on their churches while trying to convey a sense of reference and gravitas. I think they did a good job on this one!

Another lovely old building.

This is what I call a 'sturdy building'. Very nice.

Dan's observation of course is quie right. Reminds me of many schools in the midlands strangely.

It's interesting to see a church right on the street like that. Churches in my part of the world usually have big, green lawns....of course, they weren't built in 1885, though.
