A graveyard next door is handy for those who drink too much.


Comment by Ken R on 28th October 2012 at 00:04
Nice photo, many memories, my mam and neice are in this church yard. Balcarres serves a nice pint.

Nice shot, i drove past it a few weeks ago to take the long way home from work when Manchester road was flooded close to the railway bridge in Ince.


Comment by Brian from Aspull now living in Massachusetts on 28th October 2012 at 00:14
Great picture. I just returned to Massachusetts after visiting my
Dad and brother. Walked past this pub daily on my wall from Standish to Aspull.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 28th October 2012 at 02:39
Ha ha ha Alan good one!! Nice building structure, you wouldn't want to get too drunk walking home through the graveyard late at night, wouldn't be much of a thriller!!!! Nice photo Tom, cheers. :-)

Is this not classed as Haigh, the church is St David,s, Haigh isn,t it?


Comment by irene roberts on 28th October 2012 at 14:44
There is a grave somewhere in that churchyard with the date 31st April on it.


Comment by Bill on 28th October 2012 at 16:34
Brian from Aspull...I've got a good friend who lives in Acushnet, Mass.
Hoping to visit them sometime next year.


Comment by Thomas(Tom) Walsh on 29th October 2012 at 00:02
Thank you for kind comments. I was tempted to say I wonder if they sell Boddingtons Ales(Boddys),


Comment by Brian from Massachusetts on 2nd November 2012 at 00:12
Hi Bill
Acushnet - home of Titleist golf balls. Nice part of the state. I live in Leominster. You are welcome to stop by for a visit. We Wigganers have to stick together


Comment by Neil & Baz on 21st December 2012 at 19:57
We can confirm Irene Roberts statement that there is indeed a gravestone with 31st April on it. It's just down from the top lefthand corner of the church, as you look from the pub.
