St Andrew's Church, Ashton-on-Ribble
St Andrew's was built in 1836. In 187374 the architect Ewan Christian added a north aisle and converted the nave windows into Early English style. A vestry was added in 1902. The church is designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building.
The church is constructed in sandstone with slate roofs. Its plan consists of a four-bay nave, a wide north aisle, a north porch, a chancel with an organ chamber to the north, a vestry to the east, and a small west tower. The tower is in Romanesque style, and the rest of the church is in Early English style. The tower is in three stages, with buttresses, and a short broach spire. In the bottom stage are two round-headed lancet windows, with a similar but larger window in the middle stage. The bell openings are louvred, and consist of triple round-headed lancets. Along the sides of the nave and the aisle are three two-light windows, and a three-light window in the eastern bay.
