Project Details :
Bispham Parish Church, also known as All Hallows Church, is a Church of England parish church located in Bispham, Blackpool. The church is also known as the Mother Church of Blackpool.
The church is a Grade II Listed Building. It is the third church on the site and was built in 1883.
The churchyard contains the tombs of many shipwreck victims, including the captain and crew of the brig Favourite, which sank off Blackpool in 1865, and passengers from the Ocean Monarch, which caught fire in the Irish Sea in 1848. Also commemorated in the churchyard is the actress Violet Carson, who lived in Bispham and who died in 1983 and gained fame between 1960 and 1980 for her portrayal of Ena Sharples in Coronation Street.
In March 2010 Technical and Electrical Services carried out a complete inspection and report of the church and its annexe buildings, as well as carrying out remedial works to bring the church’s electrical installation up to regulation.
