St Marks Church in Dolphinholme, Lancaster, celebrates prolific Lancaster architects and local history to mark 120th anniversary.



Dolphinholme Church Hosts Austin and Paley Celebration

On Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th of September, St Mark’s Church in Dolphinholme will be opening its doors to the public for a spectacular exhibition of Lancaster architects, Austin and Paley. Between 1836 and 1942, the firm undertook over 600 commissions in the North West of England, including St Mark’s Church.

“Austin and Paley have a huge presence throughout Lancashire”, says Cindy, Vicar at St Mark’s.

“From hospitals and train stations to churches, we’re very excited to share their work with this amazing exhibition.”

Church volunteers will be serving refreshments all weekend, including cream teas and cakes, and local historians will be giving talks to regale the public with tales of Dolphinholme past and present. The village was once home to a thriving mill with the first gas lamp in the United Kingdom.

The event is sponsored by WestCoastCo, a values-based marketing company in Garstang. The WestCoastCo. team have recently launched a new website for the church, as well as providing marketing services for the event itself.

“We’re all about supporting and working with community projects”, explains Arran Eleanor, managing director of WestCoastCo.

“This is a really exciting event, and the local history is absolutely fascinating! I can’t wait to hear what the locals have to tell us.”

Austin and Paley created 370 major works, 148 restorations, and 118 minor works in Lancashire during their practice, so there will certainly be no shortage of riveting material in this exhibition (previously held at Lancaster Museum).

St Mark’s Church celebrates its 120th anniversary in 2019, and this is the first of many events in their calendar to monument this special milestone. Visit dqowbenefice.co.uk to stay up to date with their future events.
