Church of St Joseph, Owen Road, Lancaster - Lancaster

Church of 1900 by Pugin and Pugin. The 5 bay nave has aisles and a west tower. Constructed in sandstone and slate with an elaborate carved reredos in the sanctuary. Failure of weatherings to east and west nave gables allows water penetration and consequent damage to linings and finishes. Embedded roof timbers are also threatened. Further water penetration is occurring from wall head and valley gutters.
