The Parish Church of St Laurence, Chorley

St Laurence’s church is built on the site of a Saxon Church which pre-dates the present building. The oldest part of the present structure dates from 1362 when the church was rebuilt after the original building had been destroyed by invading Scots. The tower in the present church is late-mediæval, dating from the 15th century. The rest of the church is substantially Victorian, a major rebuilding of the church took place in 1859–61. Further alterations took place in 1913–14.

The church has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade II* listed building (English Heritage Building ID: 357549 LinkExternal link - Church of St Laurence, Chorley (1072631) National Heritage List for England)
