Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. St. Augustine's is a High Anglican church in the Diocese of Manchester, once called "The Miners' Cathedral" due to its almost "cathedralesque" stature in the heart of a one time coal mining community. Also sometimes called "Gussie's" by locals. It is situated just off Bolton Road (A666) in Pendlebury. Its address is 380 Bolton Road, Pendlebury, Manchester, M27 8UX. There is a primary school connected to the church (St. Augustine's C of E Primary School). It is a Grade I listed building. It was built by George Frederick Bodley between 1871 and 1874, and was generally used by the coal miners and cotton mill workers that lived in the area. It has a capacity of 'hundreds', but nowadays, due to a decline in population and a decline in church attendances across England, the congregation numbers around the 40 mark. Originally, the church was designed to have a bell tower on the southwest side which would have towered higher than the current height of the roof, sadly funds for the church ran out, and the plans for a bell tower were not carried out.
