Blackpool – Christ the King

The Presbytery, Gateside Drive, Grange Park, Blackpool FY3 7PL.

Part of a major programme of church building in post-war Blackpool. Not (on the basis of external inspection) of special architectural or historic interest.

Of the same date, and by the same architects as St Bernadette, Blackpool. Forms part of a major building programme in post-war Blackpool. Two years before the opening of Christ the King, Bishop Flynn had said (at the opening of the church of Our Lady of the Assumption): ‘We need churches…In Blackpool alone I need to provide two or three more churches as soon as possible. I have opened five temporary churches…in the last two or three years. I want others through the length and breadth of this large diocese’.
