Church Overview

The church building was designed in 1886 by London Architect A E Purdie (1843-1920), noted for his use of the Gothic style. Built of whinstone with red sandstone dressings and blue-grey Burlington slate roof, it is a church with nave and chancel, Lady Chapel and entrance porch. It sits in a quiet garden courtyard off the High Street.

Following the Second Vatican Council, in 1971 the interior was re-ordered. Stained glass of the Annunciation and Our Lady in the chancel, and The Holy Spirit and an abstract in the baptistery and Lady Chapel. Ceramic of the Virgin & Child and a frieze with stations of the Cross by local artists. Concrete and iron cross by Liverpool sculptor Sean Rice (1931-1997).
