19th- and 20th-Century Roman Catholic Churches

Introductions to Heritage Assets

Andrew Derrick

Historic England in association with Liverpool University Press

Historic England

  • For over two hundred years after the Act of Uniformity (1559) outward observance of the Roman Catholic faith was illegal in England
  • Today, a decline in the number of priests and demographic and pastoral change means that many Catholic churches face an uncertain future
  • This introduction to Heritage Assets concerns public places of parish worship. It does not consider private or institutional chapels, or those attached to convents and monasteries
