Two into One Will Go

A History of the Parish of St George, Stalybridge

A history of Old and New St George's and their eventual formation into one parish was written by a former Vicar, Paul Denby. It is called "Two into One Will Go".

Canon Denby has generously agreed for this online version of his book to be available on our web site. In making use of this material Canon Denby's authorship should be acknowledged.

At present this is only in a text version. There are plans to include the photographs from the original text.
