Church of St Mary, Cleator

St Mary's Roman Catholic Church is located on Trumpet Terrace in Cleator. The church was built in 1872 by E.W. Pugin, son of A.W.N. Pugin, the architect of the House of Parliament.[1] The church has a grotto which is a replica of the famous grotto at Lourdes. Farther Clayton (priest at Cleator 1904-54) raised an appeal for the funds to build it to provide employment for some of the parishioners when local mining and iron industries were badly effected by the Great Depression of the 1920s and 30s. The Grotto was opened on the 30th October 1927.[2] St Mary's Church is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
