Not only did I serve on the altar here ,I also went to school at St Francis! We expected to have our daughters wedding here but found it far far too expensive ,even for a special day ,and my connections.
In its hey day it was a working monastery of over 50 Franciscan monks,a fantastic church ,now on a high ranking protected list.unfortunately it is in a fairly ugly part of suburban Manchester,Gorton ( whereI was dragged up) our wedding photographs are not the best,Gorton lane is not a beauty spot.
But the church as been restored fantastically,nowhere near to its former glory ,but still impressive ,home also to many cooperate events,where money doesn't matter!its a pity ther is no concession for locals or ex parishioners.
Once inside you could be transported back to medieval England especially if you've had a beer ,my parents will be rolling in their graves.
