I can't immediately think of a St Annes in or near Blackburn either.

However if you substitute "Blackburn" with "Blackpool", there are 
towers at St Annes as in Lytham St Annes, and St Anne, Singleton.

It's a long shot since I'm not familiar with the origins of either 
installations despite having rung there in the past.
