Church History

The corner of the building just in front is the St John's (CofE) School, licensed for worship in 1851 before the church itself was built in 1874 as part of St Leonard's Parish, Padiham. In 2002 the church became independent - the vicar was also the vicar of St Anne's, Fence.

The School in the foreground of the picture, now the village hall, was opened as a National school, in 1837. It also served as a place of worship for the established church, until 1874 when the present Church, as pictured, was opened.

This site provides historical information about churches, other places of worship and cemeteries. It has no connection with the churches etc. themselves. For current information you should contact them directly.
