2/77 Roman Catholic Church of St. Hubert
- and Our Lady, and attached presbytery


Church, 1857-9, by Edward Welby Pugin. Rock-faced sandstone in irregular courses, with ashlar dressings, steeply-pitched slate roof with fishscale bands.
Nave (on north-south axis), west steeple, transeptal aisles, 3-sided
apsidal chancel with Lady Chapel. In "Middle Pointed" Gothic style. Most
openings have hoodmoulds with figured stops. Three-stage tower with splay-
footed spire in centre of west side has angle buttresses, a shallow
3-sided stair turret on its south side, a moulded arched doorway on west
side, and above this a niche, containing a statue of Our Lady, which has
a crocketed gablet; the 2-light belfry openings have trefoils in place of
louvres, and above there is a cornice with ball flower ornament, and
gripping beasts at the corners. The splay of the spire has crocketed
gablets on all sides; those at the corners form canopies for figures, the
remainder lucarnes. Aisles (2 bays, with gables), and nave (2 bays to
west side, 3 to east) have buttresses and large 5-light windows, the former
with elongated trefoil tracery, the latter with cinquefoil tracery.
South gable has a larger 5-light window with similar tracery, an arched
doorway below it; apse has gablets to all sides; Lady Chapel has a
3-light window. Interior: the arch-braced roof, rising from colonnettes,
has scissor-bracing at the apex; the pulpit attached to the left side of
the chancel arch is approached by an arched tunnel through the pier from
the chancel; and there is a projecting gallery at the south end; but the
principal feature of interest is an almost complete set of stained glass
windows by Hardman. These include: Genesis in the south window; various
saints in the transepts; St. Hubert, Christ in Majesty, and Our Lady in
the chancel; and foliated patterns in the nave. Presbytery attached at
north west corner is simpler but compatible in style, with various gables,
tall chimneys, etc. History: church was built at the expense (£6,000)
of James Lomax of Clayton Hall and Allsprings (q.v.), principal landowner
in Great Harwood.
