St George's Church Stockport

If Stockport was a city rather than just a large town, St. George's Church, opposite Stockport Cemetery in Heaviley on the A6 would be its cathedral.

A large and grand Anglican church, St. George's was consecrated in 1897 and designed in red sandstone by the Lancaster-based architect Hubert Austin (1841-1915). The tall spire of the Grade I-listed church is 72m high and the church can hold over 1,000 worshippers.

The interior has Derbyshire alabaster work, oak fittings and pews and two large stained glass windows.

The grounds of St. George's contain a memorial cross dedicated to local people killed in World War I.
