Blackburn, diocese of. The see, created in 1927 mostly out of the Manchester diocese, comprises much of Lancashire except for Liverpool and Manchester, a mixture of countryside and cotton-mill towns. The cathedral is the former parish church of St Mary's, built in 1818, early Gothic Revival in style, extended in the 1930s, 1950s, and 1960s.

Revd Dr William M. Marshall
