St. Thomas, Stockport

View from the balcony of St. Thomas's.  This is a Waterloo church; these were built with government money after the Napoleonic Wars in areas where the population was rising rapdily.  It is a splendid classical edifice and is a listed building but sadly lead was stolen from the roof while scaffolding was in place for repairs.  This church costs more than £800 a week to maintain.
