Parish Church of St. Paul
Grange-over-Sands

"A warm welcome to all ages"

Consecrated in 1853 and celebrated in verse:

The village Grange, which joins the sands,
Was far from church and market driven;
Now close at hand a new church stands
With guide to lead the road to heaven.

The maid who raised that sacred flame,
Posterity will praise her name;
And Sergeant, who with willing mind,
And pleasure, his assistance joined.

Let marvellous maid in slumber lie
While St Paul's spire points to the sky,
And guardian Cherubs shout on high
'The maiden Clarke shall never die'.
