Church History

It was founded in 1802.

St Gregory's Chorley was established in the 1740's in a barn at Weld Bank, after Burgh Hall (owned by the Chadwick family that had an RC Chapel built behind the hall) was burned down. The Chadwick family also owned and ran the Cotton Mills in the area.

By 1802 it was known as 'Weld Bank' as much as 'St Gregory's', but the surviving registers only begin in 1802.
