with presbytery
(Formerly Listed as:
ORMSKIRK
CHAPEL LANE, Lathom
Burscough Hall (now presbytery of St
John's RC Church))

GV II

Roman Catholic church and presbytery. c.1815-19; altered.
Red brick in English garden wall bond (4+1), the south facade
rendered, with sandstone plinth and slate roof.
L-plan, the church forming a receding wing to the presbytery.
Two storeys and attic, with a 2+2 window south facade (to the
garden) disguising the church as part of the house: the latter
has a round-headed doorway offset right of centre, and 2
windows on each floor, all sashed without glazing bars,
whereas the church, continued to the right, has 2 blind
windows on each floor (all these windows with raised sills and
plain reveals).
The effective entrance front is the north side: here the
church is a plain wing with a large round-headed window in the
re-entrant side, a small early C20 tower-cum-porch at the
north gable, and 3 round-headed windows in the east side wall;
and the presbytery has a small C20 lean-to porch in the
centre, a round-headed stair-window above this with radiating
glazing bars, two 16-pane unhorned sashed windows on each
floor, with raised sills and wedge lintels; and a
single-storey extension at the west end.
INTERIOR: the church has a north gallery on 2 cast-iron
columns, a round-headed sanctuary arch, a coved oval ceiling
to the sanctuary, and a tetrastyle Corinthian reredos with
giant semi-columns.
Forms group with Burscough Hall Farmhouse approx. 20m west
