St Mary's Church - Mellor

Opened in 1829, this is St Mary's in Mellor. This church had close ties with the Thwaites family. Daniel Thwaites II (lord of the manor of Mellor) is buried here and I believe there's a memorial window to John Thwaites.
In 1878, Daniel paid for the clock in the tower and the bells. Later, Mrs Yerburgh (D. Thwaites daughter) paid for an organ.
At a guess, I would date this photo to the 1880's or 1890's
