GV II*

Church, 1857-9, by Edward Welby Pugin. Rock-faced sandstone in irregular courses, with ashlar dressings, steeply-pitched slate roof with fishscale bands. Nave (on north-south axis), west steeple, transeptal aisles, 3-sided apsidal chancel with Lady Chapel. In "Middle Pointed" Gothic style. Most openings have hoodmoulds with figured stops. Three-stage tower with splay- footed spire in centre of west side has angle buttresses, a shallow 3-sided stair turret on its south side, a moulded arched doorway on west side, and above this a niche, containing a statue of Our Lady, which has a crocketed gablet; the 2-light belfry openings have trefoils in place of louvres, and above there is a cornice with ball flower ornament, and gripping beasts at the corners. The splay of the spire has crocketed gablets on all sides; those at the corners form canopies for figures, the remainder lucarnes. Aisles (2 bays, with gables), and nave (2 bays to west side, 3 to east) have buttresses and large 5-light windows, the former with elongated trefoil tracery, the latter with cinquefoil tracery. South gable has a larger 5-light window with similar tracery, an arched doorway below it; apse has gablets to all sides; Lady Chapel has a 3-light window. Interior: the arch-braced roof, rising from colonnettes, has scissor-bracing at the apex; the pulpit attached to the left side of the chancel arch is approached by an arched tunnel through the pier from the chancel; and there is a projecting gallery at the south end; but the principal feature of interest is an almost complete set of stained glass windows by Hardman. These include: Genesis in the south window; various saints in the transepts; St. Hubert, Christ in Majesty, and Our Lady in the chancel; and foliated patterns in the nave. Presbytery attached at north west corner is simpler but compatible in style, with various gables, tall chimneys, etc. History: church was built at the expense (£6,000) of James Lomax of Clayton Hall and Allsprings (q.v.), principal landowner in Great Harwood.
