Jake
 Jake   by Andrew Fishburn  (Canon EOS 5D)
Jake is the horse that has been living on the old St Nats school field. The scaffolding on the tower of St Nat's is now complete. Judging by the huge cement 'baths' at the side of the church I'm hopeful that restoration is on the cards of the landmark.

God love Jake, he's gorgeous and he looks like quite a character!
Yet another wonderful photo Andrew.

The name `Jake` reminds me of Rolf Harris` "Jake the Peg" ref.:-

There`s a video showing St. Nats on `Save Wigan` website:-

Will you be climbing to the top of the tower on completion, Andrew?
It will be more safer than on top of St.Cath`s spire, which Rev David
climbed!

Fabulous photo of Jake he really compliments this beautiful church. The brickwork is superb, does anyone know if it's Accrington Brick?


Comment by D. on 1st March 2013 at 09:50

Comment by Andrew Fishburn on 1st March 2013 at 10:47

if that horse hangs around any longer it's gonna end up in someones meat pie ........

Good to see the progress on repairing the tower to St Nats, which I attended during my formative years. Now living in Norfolk I don't get up as often as I would like and am pleased to see the tree removed.
The horse is cute too.
