Our Lady of Lourdes

 

This Grade II listed church is a large, ambitious and self-confident Gothic design by the notable ecclesiastical architect G. B. Cox. It was erected between the wars as a replica of the Marian shrine at Lourdes. There is an interesting use of reinforced concrete superstructure, including a concrete platform and jacks within the crypt, to protect the building from potential mining subsidence.

The maintenance grant has helped the church to unblock gutters, hoppers and downpipes as well as fixing a number of slipped slates.
