St Anne, Radcliffe-on–Trent and Bingham

Following the first world war, Radcliffe developed in to a dormitory suburb of Nottingham. The new settlers contained an average proportion of Catholics for whom, in 1938, Fr Woodbridge of West Bridgford opened a Mass-centre in ‘The Lodge’ at Wharfe End. In 1940 a corrugated-iron building in Shelford Road was bought and dedicated to The English Martyrs. Sunday Mass was said monthly until 1948; after which date it was said every week in a chapel which soon proved to be inadequate for the numbers of its congregation.  The current church was “opened, blessed and dedicated to St. Anne” on 26 July 1962. The original intention was this should become the parish hall once a church had been built.  This intention was never fulfilled and the hall has remained the church.  However, it has been altered and extended over the years and now has catering facilities, a meeting room and extra seating all of which were provided in 1982  In the 1990s, the presbytery was extended, adding an office and a small reception room. A new sacristy was also built on to the hall.  Finally, on 26 July 2002, the fortieth anniversary of its dedication, it was consecrated by Bishop McMahon.

The following priests served at St Anne’s until the parish became part of the new Parish of the Annunciation in March 2023

1963 – 1974    Fr P Wilson
1974 – 1976    Fr F McLoughlin
1977 – 1995    Fr D Daly
1995 – 2022   Fr A Franey
2022 –  2023    Fr J Martin
