The Church Recording Group of Ribble and Craven has been working for many years but the team has reduced in size and so has merged with the Samlesbury DFAS team. The last church to be worked on was St Mary’s Osbaldeston. It is an early Catholic Church, built in a simple style in 1838. It has a simple gable roof with an adjoining presbytery. A key feature is the symbolism in the stained glass which refers to the Litany of Mary. Mary is described as being the Ark of the Covenant, the Tower of David, the Gate of Heaven, the House of Gold and the Star of the Sea (stella maris).
