St Cuthbert by the Forest Church

If you are visiting the Goshawk or taking a walk on our Mouldsworth Rail Trail be sure to look out for St Cuthbert by the Forest Church.

It is 100 yards left at the station or towards the end of the Rail Trail on Station Road.

You cannot miss its standalone campanile bell tower.

Back in the 1920’s there was an influx of Irish farm workers and the landlady of the Station Hotel persuaded a curate from St Werburgh’s to come out and say Mass in a pavilion behind the hotel but it had to coincide with the Mid Cheshire Line train times.

After the war, the landlady purchased the land next to the hotel and St Cuthbert was opened in 1953.
