St Anne’s, Turton, Blackburn

Built 1840; listed grade II; in use as church

Freeman carried out various works here in 1888: extension of the chancel, installation of the reredos and reseating.

The reredos is described by Pevsner as “alabaster, Renaissance style, extending over almost the whole E wall.”

In May 1890, Freeman showed 70 members of the Lancashire and Cheshire antiquarian society around the church (followed by tea at the Chetham Arms!).
