St Anne's Church in Haughton, Denton is a Grade I Listed Building. The foundation stone was laid on the 1st September 1880 and the church was finally completed on the 29th July 1882. The building was designed by J. Medland Taylor and 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.
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. 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.
