Saint Alban's is a large brick-built Anglican church begun in 1938 in what was then a new residential district to the north-west of Hull city centre. The building was completed in 1956 to the original designs of Sir W Milner and RB Craze. Milner was a leading figure in the Anglo-Catholic movement of the early 20th century and is probably best known for his designs for the shrine church at Walsingham, Norfolk.

Inside the building are walls of exposed brick and a handsome arch-braced roof.
The tower arch leads into the nave and the relative simplicity of this area gives a sense of tranquility.

Of particular note in the fittings of the church is the font with a carved frieze of scallop shells and dolphins and the reredos behind the high altar.

We have a collection of some material not acceptable to the local authority.
