Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Heys Street, Thornton Cleveleys - Wyre

Roman Catholic church designed by Pugin and Pugin, dated 1899. External face of rock-faced coarse-dressed sandstone with ashlar dressing. Elaborate Gothic with mullioned pointed arched window with curvilinear tracery. Suspected inclusion of now corroding iron locating dowels within base of tracery mullions is causing widespread failure.
