A rare church built in the reign of Queen Mary I

The Old Church at Langho was completed in 1557. It is a rarity, for few churches were built in the reign of Mary I (1516-1558).

Much of the stonework, including carvings, windows, plinths, piscina and credence, is of high quality and almost certainly came from the recently dissolved Whalley Abbey nearby, as did the main roof timbers and fragmentary Medieval glass in the chancel.

The set of late seventeenth-century bench ends, with carved dates and initials is exceptional.

Our churches cost on average, £2500 per year, to keep them clean, conservation work, maintenance checks and in a safe condition for visitors to come and enjoy.
