Chapel History

NEWTON, a parochial chapelry, in the parish and union of Manchester, hundred of Salford, S. division of Lancashire; comprising the townships of Bradford, Droylsden, Failsworth, Newton, and Moston; and containing 16,521 inhabitants, of whom 6127 are in Newton township, 2 miles (N. E. by E.) from Manchester. The manufacture of cotton, and the printing of calico, are carried on to a considerable extent, and silk-weaving upon a smaller scale. The village of Newton lies on the road from Manchester to Oldham; and the Manchester and Leeds railway and the Rochdale canal pass through the chapelry. The townships of Newton and Bradford are within the parliamentary borough of Manchester. The living is a perpetual curacy; net income, £155; patrons and appropriators, the Dean and Chapter of Manchester. The former chapel, dedicated to All Saints, and built prior to 1650, fell down on the 2nd of May, 1808: the present edifice was erected on its site, at an expense of £8000, defrayed by a rate on the inhabitants, and is a handsome structure in the later English style. The townships of Droylsden and Failsworth have lately been constituted ecclesiastical parishes, under the provisions of the act 6th and 7th Victoria, cap. 37; a church was consecrated in the latter in Nov. 1846, and one was erected in the former in 1847. There are several places of worship for dissenters; and numerous schools.

Records for All Saints Parish Church date back to 1655. There is an ancient chapelry mentioned as far back as 1573 when Bishop Bridgman made an order in respect of maintenance for a curate.

The current church was erected in 1814 under an Act of Parliament. At this time the district of the chapelry changed and included Newton (Newton Heath), Failsworth, Droylsden, Bradford and part of Moston. This continued until the passing of the Rectorial Act when these places were separated and became parishes.

Newton All Saints was created as a chapelry in 1839 from, and lying within Manchester Our Lady, St George and St Denys, Lancashire Ancient Parish.

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.
