Cemeteries

We don't know whether this Church has (or had) a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1876, and we understand it is still open.

The following information about the Church has been provided to accompany the photographs on the right. A list of people who have supplied the information is included in the Acknowledgements, below.

[Image 1] The church has a notable west tower and spire and another over-sized turret at the junction of the south aisle and south chapel. It was built in 1875-6 by T D Barry and Sons of Liverpool and also has an odd feature of a transeptal bay behind the south porch. The main door was locked but around the back by the fairly recent church hall, another small door leading into the vestry was opening and a lady was coming out, who very kindly accompanied me back in to the church.[1]

[Image 2] The interior is spacious, if unremarkable after the entertaining exterior. There is no tower arch at the west end, just a doorway covered by a curtain which leaves a large expanse of bare wall at this end of the church (where a small painting has been hung in an attempt to enliven things!)[1]

Denomination

Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
