7/113 Church of St.Mary

Roman Catholic Church, 1820. Sandstone rubble with hipped slate roof.
East wall has gabled porch of shallow projection. This has a Venetian
opening, with the door flanked by windows. At each side a corbel supports
a stone bust, the left-hand one of the Emperor Constantine, the right-hand
one of King Oswald of Northumbria. Inside there is a flat ceiling. Nave and
chancel are divided by 2 Tuscan columns and 2 attached columns. Behind the
altar are 2 half-columns and 2 quarter-columns. These may have come from
the C18th chapel at Claughton, said to be-dismantled to provide stone for
the present church. Dr. John Lingard, author of the History of England,
was priest at Hornby between 1811 and 1851 and was responsible for
building the present church.
