Chapel History[edit | edit source]

NEWTON (All Saints), a parochial chapelry, in the parish and union of Manchester Our Lady, St George and St Denys, Lancashire, hundred of Salford, S. division of Lancashire; comprising the townships of Bradford, Droylsden, Failsworth, Newton, and Moston, 2 miles northeast by east from Manchester. The former chapel, dedicated to All Saints, and built prior to 1650, fell down on the 2nd of May, 1808 and was rebuilt by 1848. The townships of Droylsden and Failsworth have lately been constituted ecclesiastical parishes, under the provisions of the act 6th and 7th Victoria. St Marys Droylsden was consecrated and opened for worship in August, 1846, and Failsworth St John was erected by 1845. The chapels of St Mary Moston and Bradford Christ Church opened respectively in 1867 and 1862. Other places in the chapelry include: Kirkmanshulme and Culcheth.

The modern parish was created in 1997 when united with St. Wilfred and St. Anne's to form the parish of Newton Heath. There are several places of worship for dissenters; and numerous schools.[1]
