The Grade II listed St Luke's Church, set on a huge mound off Liverpool Street in Weaste, is the latest Salford building added to the new Historic England Heritage at Risk Register 2018, released today.
St Luke's is only one of eight new sites nationally added to the register, and joins twelve other Salford places of worship in a list of 16 'at risk' buildings in the city.
The Church, designed by George Gilbert Scott and built in 1865, is famous for hosting the wedding of suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst in 1879, but is under threat from a leaking roof.
St Luke's now hopes to benefit from a Government Taylor Review £1.8million pilot scheme, running in only Greater Manchester and Suffolk, launched to see listed places of worship repaired and improved with the aid of expert advisers...
"They will help local volunteers to look after and manage Places of Worship, including churches, synagogues and meeting houses, and will also explore how they can serve their wider communities" states Historic England.
