The church of St. Thomas at Stockton Heath was built in 1868 by E. G. Paley. In the sanctuary there are a number of tiles of which I show one example and the pale green panels visible on either side of the altar are tiles with yellow and green plant motifs. The town centre of Stockton Heath lies just south of the Manchester Ship Canal, on the other side of the canal are a number of large red-brick buildings formerly part of breweries. This site has now been redeveloped as offices.
