St Edmund’s Church (or the Church of St Edmund) is a redundant church building located on Clement Royds Street in the Falinge area of Rochdale, in Greater Manchester, England. Commissioned by Rochdale’s local industrialist and Freemason Albert Royds, the construction of the building was completed to a high and rich specification in 1873, with an “enormous” cost of around £25,000 (£1.88 million as of 2014). It is the only known church building in England so overtly dedicated to Masonic symbolism and is therefore unique within English architecture.
