1 review of St. Anne's Church in English
The Church of St. Anne in Singleton was built circa 1861 and is a lovely little church both inside and out. There are regular weekly services with Junior church held on the first Sunday of each month. The church is a grade II listed building. Interestingly, the lychgate which can be seen in the photograph is also grade II listed, it is timber built and has a red tiled roof and adds wonderful character to the entrance to the churchyard, not to mention making a great backdrop for wedding photos! Anyone visiting the church at Singleton may be interested to know that all the original cottages in the village were also built at the same time as the church, roughly between about 1856 and 1861. The previous village of Singleton was literally pulled down and completely rebuilt by a wealthy Preston cotton mill owner called Thomas Miller who bought the estate of Singleton in 1852. By all accounts it was viewed as a 'model village' back then and it still retains much of its original character even all these years on.
