St Ann's Church, the interior of which is shown here, Manchester, was consecrated in 1712. Although named after St Anne, it also pays tribute to the patron of the church, Ann, Lady Bland. St Ann's Church is a Grade I listed building. A large cornfield named Acres Field, which is now St Ann's Square, became the site for St Ann's Church. The church was an impressive building and although it stood between the market and the collegiate church, both towers could be seen from all directions. It is a neo-classical building, originally constructed from locally quarried, red Collyhurst sandstone. Windows were made by William Peckitt of York.
