Parish History

Admarsh St Eadmer is a chapel of ease created in 1748 from Lancaster St Mary, Lancashire Ancient Parish.

St Eadmer is a virtually unique dedicatory name in England. The church was rebuilt in 1835 by John Dewhurst and restored and enlarged in 1897. It has a west tower and lancet windows.

Bleasdale is a village and civil parish in the Wyre district of Lancashire, England, in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Admarsh in Bleasdale, St Eadmer, is a chapelry in the parish of Lancaster, union of Garstang, hundred of Amounderness, N. division of the county of Lancaster, 7 miles east by north from Garstang.[1]
