Lost Chorlton Churches nu 1 .............. St Clement's

An occasional series devoted to those Chorlton Churches which have gone.

Now the first has to be St Clement's for while there is a church with that name  on Edge Lane this was not the first.

The original was a wood and plaster chapel on the green which dated from the early 16th century and was replaced by a brick one on the same site at the beginning of the 19th century.

It closed in 1940 and was demolished in 1949.
