Save this Endangered Heritage

Former St Ignatius Church Building was named in 2009 by the Victorian Society as one of the 10 most endangered Victorian and Edwardian buildings in England and Wales. The building has also been named by Save Britain’s Heritage in their Buildings at Risk Register.

The building is a source of pride and identity and a reminder of Ordsall community’s culture and complexity. The building is an inseparable part of Ordsall community’s tangible past and can offer excellent opportunities for the community’s culture and economic future.
