This unusual Grade II listed building in Lytham St Annes, known locally as The White Church, was built in 1904 in a style known as “Free Byzantine”. The Congregational Union of England and Wales raised half a million guineas for the build which took 8 years. Several architects competed for the contract which stipulated that the church must be “distinctive”. I think they were successful in this. The church is glazed in white tiles and has a minaret where you would expect a spire.

The White Church is on the coast and looks especially impressive with a blue sky backdrop.
