All Saints: East end of the nave
The East end of the Nave is dominated by the Screen erected in 1912, richly gilded and coloured in 1957. It stands on the site of the ancient rood screen which was partly destroyed in the 16th century and where later stood a Mayor's Gallery (1680) and finally an organ loft (1709-1845).The Nave Altar was installed in 1977.
All Saints Parish Church, Wigan
All Saints Church was established in Saxon times and was probably built on the site of a temple in the Roman settlement of Coccium. The present structure is at least the third building on the site. Major rebuilding took place in 1620 and 1849 and further restorations were made from 1898-1902, from 1947-1957 and from 2002-2006.
