We believe the Church did NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded before 1938, but we understand it was closed by 1995.

This building was the parish Hall belonging to St Sebastian's Church, a mission of St Thomas's Church in Mellor, built for the residents of Marple Bridge, in 1908.

It is not known when the Hall was erected, but evidently by 1938, as an outline of a building at the appropriate location is shown on Maps of that date.

There is reference to the Hall in Outlook, St Thomas's Church Newsletter for May 2015, where it records that meetings of the Women's Guild were held there. The Newsletter also records that St Sebastian's was sold in 1970, but the Hall was retained until 1995, when discussions began for its disposal, together with the parish field, which lay between the Hall and the Church.

Since then, the Hall has been demolished, and a cul-de-sac of new housing built on the site, named appropriately "St Sebastian's Close".


Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.


This Church was located at OS grid reference SJ9675089073. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:
