St Annes Parish Church Heritage Mural

St Annes Parish Church Heritage Mural

St Annes Church, which was commissioned by Lady Clifton in the early 1870s, was built as a chapel of ease to benefit the farm labourers and fishermen of the hamlet of Heyhouses, who had difficulty in getting to St Cuthberts church in Lytham on a Sunday morning. Amongst the many features of interest in the church is the Heritage Mural, a giant tapestry, embroidered by the Church Broderers Guild in the 1990s, which shows places and events of note in the history of St Annes-on-Sea and its church. The mural has won several awards. For Group Visits one of the broderers can be on hand to explain some of the features of the tapestry. Contact Tel no 01253 722725 or 722736
