All Saints, Barton, Manchester

barton-church-02

All Saints at Barton, Manchester is where OFSGB now has its national seat. The church was built between 1865 and 1868. Cardinal Manning preached at the solemn opening in June 1868.
The Friars Minor Conventual have cared for the church, described as ‘A Cathedral in miniature’, since 1962. The church is listed as Grade 1 and is considered to be the chief work of the architect Edward Welby Pugin (son of the better known Augustus Pugin). It is a remarkably complete example of Victorian Catholic Church architecture in the Gothic style. The architectural historian, Sir Nikolaus Pevsner called it ‘Pugin’s masterwork’.
