I was just passing St. Augustine’s, my old church, when doing planning application site visits and couldn’t resist a photo. St. Augustine’s is a lovely grade II listed Edwardian church. It displays many of the qualities of that exceptional architectural era. Huncoat is one of the oldest settlements of Hyndburn Borough being recorded in the Domesday Book and still having a medieval manor hall. However, until St. Augustine’s was built, it never had a church, deferring to nearby Altham or Church Kirk in that regard.
