Holy Name Church
Also known as The Catholic Church of the Holy Name of Jesus
- The church was opened on October 15th 1871.
- The octagonal tower was extended to 56.4m in 1928, using a design by Adrian Gilbert Scott. The original 1869 plan called for a spire 73m high but this was never built due to poor quality ground beneath the site.
- The church is famously mentioned in the song 'Vicar in a Tutu' by The Smiths.
