All Saints, Barton Upon Irwell

Built between 1865 and 1868 the strikingly unusual, Grade I listed, church of All Saints lies at the heart of the Barton Upon Irwell Conservation area is considered to be the seminal work of architect Edward Welby Pugin. 

The building is a remarkably complete example of Victorian church architecture in a Gothic style which is French in character. both in plan, lacking Transepts, and elevational treatment, dominated by gablets and steeply pitched roofs. 

Having previously restored the Sanctuary, including its ornate, richly decorated plaster vaulted ceiling, KPS was appointed to undertake the Quinquennial Inspection Report of both the church and attached Presbytery in 2019, and, in 2020 made a successful application to Historic England’s Cultural Recovery Fund for a programme of works to the ‘De Trafford’ Chapel, located to the north of the Sanctuary.  The chapel has great significance in being the origins of the church, initially conceived as a stand alone chantry, and the works, completed in 2021, included the complete re-roofing, rationalising of rainwater disposal and local masonry repairs.
