St Nicholas, Fleetwood may, at first glance, look very .modern with its origami-like folds and massive brick arches. Yet, it is essentially a conservative building whose structure in many respects follows the traditions of the previous millennium. It is one of Fleetwood's best buildings and deserves to be more widely known.
The church is the work of Laurence King (1907-1981), perhaps better known in Lancashire as the architect of the corona and spire of Blackburn Cathedral. The foundation stone was laid by Nicholas Meynell Esq. on 15th October 1960, when the site was hallowed by the Bishop of Blackburn.
