Warton – Holy Family

1 Lytham Road, Warton PR4 1AD

Of some interest as a dual-purpose building erected under the patronage of two prolific clerical builders, but not of special architectural interest.

Built as a church/school by Fr Gillow of Kirkham and Canon James Taylor of Lytham and opened in 1899. Initially served from Kirkham, but c1906 Fr Gillow paid for a new presbytery, allowing for a resident parish priest. The back half of the church was originally a school, but this closed in the 1950s, when the whole building became a church. The sanctuary was reformed in the 1970s, a new porch added in the early 1980s and a parish hall in 2004.

Architecturally, this is a modest example of buildings erected under the patronage of Canon Taylor (see other Lytham churches). Red brick with stone dressings, slate roof.  Replacement windows. Interior not inspected.
