Former Church of St. Edward (RC), William Frame, 1886-90 Neo-Romanesque church with rose window, apse and saddleback tower, Burges-like in its tough, lancet style. Inside, crisp sculptural detail to nook shafts and capitals; a band of stone heads round the nave carved by Thomas Nicholls. The church was a gift of the Marchioness of Bute in memory of her father, Lord Howard of Glossop; it was restored and converted to a study centre by A.R.P. Lorimer & Assocs, 1999-2001.
