near to Liverpool, Great Britain

St. Oswald, King & Martyr, Old Swan
St. Oswald, King & Martyr, Old Swan
St. Oswald, King & Martyr on St Oswald's Street was opened on 4th August 1842.
The architect was the best Catholic architect of his day, A.W. Pugin, renowned for his re-introduction of the Gothic style. The church is set on a sandstone ridge and the 165 ft spire is a land mark for miles around. It was the first spire on a Catholic Church in the north of England after the Reformation and had to be repaired in 1989 due to gale damage. Mass graves of over 300 unknown people were found adjacent to the churchyard in 1974. There is much speculation and much written about the origin of these graves.
