Slaidburn, St Andrew's Church
Slaidburn, St Andrew's Church
There was a church at Slaidburn as early as the Norman period, but the current church dates to 1450. The church consists of a nave and chancel with clearstorey, north and south aisles, west tower, and north porch. St Andrew's is particularly notable for its excellent quality woodwork.
There is an Elizabethan font cover, a very attractive set of early Georgian pew boxes, a carved Jacobean chancel screen, and a glorious triple-decker pulpit from 1740. The organ was used at the Great Exhibition of 1851 and installed at Slaidburn in 1870.
