The graveyard and bell tower of St David's Church.

St David's Church Haigh and Aspull, is one of the 'Commissioners' churches built after 1819, when the commissioners of the Treasury were authorised to issue Exchequer Bonds, not exceeding one million pounds, for church building. The basic purpose of the church building programme was to cater for the phenomenal growth of population in Lancashire at that time.

Thomas Rickman was the architect for St David's Church and the building is described as having :- "Nave with bellcote and chancel. Long lancet windows, shafted inside with shaft rings. Wide interior, originally probably with galleries. The ceiling panelled with quatrefoils". Building costs were 3,433.

Work commenced in 1831 and the church of St David was opened on 2nd June 1833.
