Finance was provided by the Corporation of Lancaster, Queen Anne’s Bounty, and local residents, and the church began its life as a chapel of ease of the Priory.

In 1784 the west tower, designed by Thomas Harrison, was added.

In the tower is a treble bell of 1747 by Rudhall of Gloucester, and a tenor bell by Mears of Whitechapel of 1846. Both came from the parish church.
