St Anne's Church in Haughton, Denton is a Grade I Listed Building.[1] The church was built in 1881 and designed by J. Medland Taylor.[2] The construction was funded by E. Joseph Sidebotham, a member of the Sidebotham mill-owning family of Hyde. The church was built in brick in the Gothic Revival style, but also utilised timber framing.[3]

It has been described as the best-known work of the architects, an 'extraordinary free-form brick church [that] forms the nucleus of the most important cluster of their buildings' surviving.[4] The lychgate and rectory that adjoin the main church are also of architectural significance, and each is on the register of protected buildings in its own right.[5][6]
