The Church of John the Baptist, Tunstall, Lancashire.
The church was built in 1415 with some 13th century remains and 16th century alterations. It was restored in 1907 by Austin and Paley. A Roman votive stone has been built into the surround of a window in the north aisle (strangely laid on its side).
A painting of the 'Lamentation of Christ' had hung in the church for over 200 years and was only discovered to be the work of Francesco Montemezzano (1540-1602) after featuring on the BBC programme, 'Fake or Fortune' in July 2015.
The church was attended by the Bronte sisters while they attended school at Cowan Bridge.
Grade 1 Listed.
