Spire Appeal Save Our Spire

Anyone who is familiar with Alderley Edge will know and recognise the view of St. Philip and St. James' Church. The Church is a Grade II* listed building, which was built in 1853, to the design of the prominent Manchester architect J.S.Crowther.

In 1857 the building was enlarged, almost doubling its' seating capacity and the South Porch and Tower were added, together with the beautifully proportioned spire. The structural integrity of the spire is held together with metal retaining rods and in the most recent inspection, it was identified that these had corroded and will need replacing. This requires taking down a substantial proportion of the spire and then building back up.

The costings for carrying out these and other related works is £150,000. If the Church is unable to raise these funds, then there may be no option but to take down the spire and cap it off, potentially losing forever an important landmark.

The Church has been running many events to help raise these much needed funds and we have currently raised over £70,000.
