St. Anne’s parish was founded in 1897 by Father Robert Holmes, who later became Canon of the diocese. The first church was called St. Augustine's.
In 1925, Father William Healy built St Anne’s and firmly established the parish.
Original carvings from the church were copied by ASJ and reproduced to fit into a wall extension. The original carvings were photographed and then a computer image was created for the CNC machine to replicate.
Once the design was approved, the number of copies required were reproduced.

“I was just admiring what I thought was original woodwork to the building”.
The area joining the tearoom to the antique centre at Holden Wood, Haslingden was uninspiring. ASJ transformed the space, creating a restful, Arts & Crafts atmosphere, sympathetic to the building. The doors and architraves made by ASJ show detail carved from one piece of wood, stained, button-polished and waxed. Grand Aesthetic Movement interior doorways of the 1880’s had intricate carved doors, taking inspiration from nature, including animals, flowers and trees. Another inspiration for the doors was the Georgian six panelled carved door. Early Arts and Crafts plain or carved doors were inspired by English medieval forms.
