St Chad's, Poulton-le-Fylde
There has probably been a church on the site of the present St Chad's since before the Norman conquest of England in 1066, and there is written evidence of one from 1094. The dedication to 7th century Anglo-Saxon saint Chad of Mercia lends weight to its pre-conquest foundation. At the time of the English Reformation in the 16th century, St Chad's became the Anglican parish church.
The present tower was built in the 17th century and the church was extensively renovated in 1751. The apse was added in 1868. Further renovations in 1955 included the addition of a central aisle and the removal of some of the church furnishings. A small extension was added north of the tower in 2005.

St Chad's was designated a Grade II* listed building on 23 September 1950 LinkExternal link St Chad's is part of the diocese of Blackburn in the Province of York. Church website: LinkExternal link
