The Church of St Peter in Old Market Street, Blackley, Manchester, England, is a Gothic Revival church of 1844 by E. H. Shellard.[1] It was a Commissioners' church erected at a cost of £3162.[1] The church is particularly notable for an almost completely intact interior.[1] It was designated a Grade II* listed building on 20 June 1988.[2]

The church is of "coursed sandstone rubble with ashlar dressings".[2] The nave has buttresses and "clumsy" pinnacles and ends in a "blunt" west tower.[1] The interior is aisled and "particularly impressive for its complete (nineteenth century) interior with the extremely unusual survival of all the fine boxes and other pews".[2]

The churchyard contains the war graves of ten service personnel of World War I and seven of World War II.[3]
