Church of St George, St George's Street, Chorley - Chorley

Church built to the designs of Thomas Rickman in 1825. The nave has galleried aisles, east chancel and west tower. Constructed of ashlar sandstone with slate roof. Principal structure and envelope in fair condition, but foundation failure of internal sleeper walls on the north side is causing progressive deflection of the nave floor and gallery above. The church has been a victim of heritage crime.
