St. Ann’s Church
Locals and visitors alike consider St. Ann’s Church to be a little known gem in Manchester, United Kingdom. With the church tower located on the exact point of the city centre, St. Ann’s Church provides an ethereal and divine retreat that even nonbelievers can enjoy. The church’s name reflects both the patron saint after which it was named and its original benefactress, Lady Ann Bland. Designed by architect Christopher Wren, this eighteenth century building provides a stark contrast to the plain and functional brick buildings in this city of north-western England that began blossoming around the Industrial Revolution.
- Gaze at the outstanding stained glass windows, particularly the art deco window installed in memory of Hilda Collens who founded the Northern School of Music in Manchester.
- Music plays an important part in the cultural life of this Manchester church with weekly recitals played on St. Ann Church’s original organ dating from 1730, as well as numerous jazz and classical concerts conducted throughout the year.
- Be sure to visit the St. Ann’s Church Lady Chapel which contains the original communion table donated by Lady Ann Bland.
Located on St. Ann’s Square in the city centre, St. Ann’s Church is easily accessible by foot from most other central buildings and attractions. From Manchester Piccadilly Rail Station, travellers can take a free Metroshuttle 1 bus. The journey will take approximately 10 minutes.
