St. Michael & All Angels Church, Macclesfield
The scheme comprised the refurbishment and remodelling of the existing listed church.
The works included the construction of a new two storey function and meeting facility with full height curtain walling to separate the structure from the existing worship space.
A chapel was founded on this site soon after the borough was established around 1220. This was extended or rebuilt, as All Hallows or All Saints, around 1278 by Queen Eleanor, the wife of King Edward I. It has been rebuilt several times, most recently in 1901. However a number of important additions remain from earlier times, especially the Legh and Savage chapels, and several memorials.
These works, known as “Open Door” Phase 1, included a welcome area (Narthex), meeting rooms and an office at the West End.
A second phase followed in which the room to the South East of the building was equipped as a Youth Centre. As part of the “Open Door Reordering”, extensive repair work was carried out to the church roof and to the church organ which was completely dismantled, cleaned, repaired and re-built.
