St Saviour's Church is an Anglican parish church to the north of the hamlet of Aughton, Lancashire, England.

Ecclesiastical organisation[edit]

The church is within the deanery of Tunstall, the archdeaconry of Lancaster and the diocese of Blackburn. Its benefice is united with those of St Wilfrid, Halton and St Luke, Slyne-with-Hest.[1]


The church was built in 1864 and designed by the Lancaster architect E. G. Paley. It cost £590 (equivalent of £50,000 in 2015),[2] and provided seating for 100 people.[3] In 1913–14 the successors in the Lancaster practice, Austin and Paley added a parclose screen.[4]


It is a small church with lancet windows, including a triple lancet at the east end. It has a bellcote at the west end, and a south porch.[5]
