Blackpool – St Bernadette

26 All Hallows Road, Bispham, Blackpool FY2 OAS

A modest design, belonging to a major programme of church building initiated by Bishop Flynn in post-war Blackpool.

The church is of the same date, and by the same architects as Christ the King, Blackpool. Two years before the opening of St Bernadette’s, 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’. The church is a plain brick building with later stucco embellishments. Interior not inspected.
