Hyde Cemetery Chapel

This beautiful chapel is situated within the cemetery in Hyde. It was built in 1894.

I heard that Tameside Council are going to demolish this beautiful building shortly - I hope I heard wrong. It's the last of three churches that used to stand within the cemetery grounds. The top one was originally the Church of England building. the middle one (and last remaining) is the non conformist chapel and the bottom one was the Roman Catholic building. If it goes then it'll be such a shame as it is a really unusual building and deserves pride of place.
