Church of St Margaret, Main Street, Hornby with Farleton, Hornby-with-Farleton - Lancaster

On an ancient site (Saxon cross base in churchyard). Church rebuilt in 1514 by sir Edward Stanley, with octagonal tower of three stages, and semi octagonal apse intended to hold his tomb. Nave rebult 1817, clerestory added in 1889 by Paley and Austin. An important building, with no parallels in Northern England.
