So beautiful and so neglected

The former St Ignatius Church Building in Ordsall Salford cries for rescue

Having stood empty for many years with no maintenance, The former St Ignatius Church Building in Ordsall Salford is in extremely poor condition and at risk of being lost forever. This is the building where many notable British men and women started their careers or had gone on stage to performance in the past.

The building represents considerable past investment of physical, natural and cultural resources, where significant architectural and historic features already exist. It makes good sense to make the most of the resource it provides, rather than destroy it or allow it to decay with consequent cultural, environmental, social and economic costs.

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.
