This is the inside of Long Street Methodist Church as it was in 1907. It is now part of the Edgar Wood Centre in Middleton, Manchester, England. The stonework is a pinkish colour, the brickwork is a close match, the roof is brown while the bench in the foreground was stained sage green, an attractive colour contrast. Edgar Wood pioneered a style of church design which was both traditional and modern at the same time.
