History

The Holy Trinity Platt Church is a grade II listed building in M14. It was built in 1845 for Thomas Carrill Worsley. It is made of terracotta- clay based unglazed ceramic. During the Roman occupation of Britain, about 200 gold coins that date back to the 2nd century were hidden in the Gore Brook Valley. In the 1890s these coins were found where Birchfields Road crosses the brook. These coins can now be seen on display at the Manchester Museum. In 1986, the UK’s first drive through McDonald’s opened in M14.
