Workington – St Gregory

Furness Road, Moor Close, Workington, CA14 3PD

  • From parish website

A plain post-Vatican II design, built to serve a post-war housing estate. 

The parish was erected in 1964 to serve new housing in Westfield. A church hall was used from 1966 until October 1982, when the present church was consecrated by Bishop Pearson of Lancaster. The architects were Harry Walters & Livesey (CBR, 1981). The building is faced in roughcast cement, under a pitched slate roof. A carved figure of Christus Rex is fixed to the gable of an entrance projection. The interior was not inspected; a photograph on the parish website (above) shows a polygonal space with bare brick walls, boarded timber roof and rear/top lighting over the altar.
