Lovers of St Colman’s Cathedral, Cobh will definitely be interested in the practically contemporaneous Church of All Saints in Barton-upon-Irwell in the diocese of Salford (England). E.W. Pugin began the church in 1865 at the behest of Sir Humphrey de Trafford of Trafford Park. All Saints was consecrated in 1868 by the Right Reverend William Turner, first bishop of Salford, when work began in Cobh. Like Cobh, the style is French Gothic (note the strong similarity). Once again, we may detect the influence of the French revival movement of Lassus and Didron.
The Church was restored under the auspices of English heritage about 20 years ago.
