Inspired Sunday: Stood outside Gorton Monastery

I give you a kind of triptych of Gorton Monastery, also known as the Church and Friary of St Francis.  The Franciscans arrived in this part of east Manchester in December 1861 and built their friary between 1863 and 1867. I hope it is enjoyed by fellow Inspired Sunday bloggers. We went inside back in March last year and on 23 November.


  1. Wow! It's huge! Is it open to the public? I suppose the church is open for services. Nowadays monks are much fewer in number than in years gone by. I wonder how long they can keep this building maintained.... I hope for a long time as it is beautiful.

  2. i love how you make it look so tall ... those spires are amazing!! ( :

  3. That is one huge buttress on the front of that church
