Chapelry History

South Shore Holy Trinity was created a district chapelry in 1837, lying in partin the parishes of Bispham, LancashirePoulton le Fylde, Lancashire and Marton, Lancashire.

A church was first built on the site of Holy Trinity in 1836. It was located amongst sandhills, in what is now Dean Street, South Shore. Designed by John Braithwaite, the church held 250 people. The church became a parish church in 1871. In the 1880s, damage to the building meant that a new church had to be built; it was completed in 1895. The new design was by Bolton architect Richard Knill Freeman. Holy Trinity was designated a Grade II listed building by English Heritage on 20 October 1983. The Grade II listing is for buildings that are "nationally important and of special interest".

The Diocese of Blackburn is a Church of England diocese, covering much of Lancashire, created in 1926 from part of the Diocese of Manchester. The Diocese includes the towns of Blackburn, Blackpool, Burnley, and the cities of Lancaster, and Preston, as well as a large part of the Ribble Valley.
