St Margaret, Dalton-in-Furness - Church of England
St Mary's. A temporary iron church was built in 1872, mainly using funds provided by Barrow Haematite Iron & Steel Company. It was superseded by a new stone building in 1901-02. It closed c1980, but the building was subsequently purchased in 1981 by the Roman Catholic authorities as a replacement for their older chapel nearby.
The large increase in population during the last few years rendered more church accommodation necessary, and, through the efforts of the present vicar; an iron church (St. Margaret's), capable of seating 1,000 persons, was erected, in which services are conducted by the Rev. G. W. Cole, B.A.
