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.

This parish, which was constituted in 1840, under the provisions of the act 1st and 2nd of Victoria, cap. 106, comprises the townships of Clifton-with-Salwick and Newton-with-Scales. The Lancaster canal, and the road from Kirkham to Preston, pass through. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of the Dean and Canons of Christ-Church, Oxford, who are the impropriators; gross income, £192, with a parsonage-house. The vicarial tithes of the two townships will be added to the income on the next avoidance of Kirkham, and the value of the living will then be about £350 per annum. The church, formerly a chapel, was built in 1825, and is a stone edifice in the early English style, with a campanile turret: the cost of erection was £800.—See Clifton, and Newton.
